Hollywood Mourns As Screen Icon Doris Day Dies Of Pneumonia


Hollywood legend Doris Day has died at the age of 97.

Her death was announced by her charity, the Doris Day Animal Foundation, on Monday.

The foundation said in an emailed statement she was surrounded by close friends and ‘had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia.’

She died at home in Carmel Valley, California.

Day shot to fame in the 50s and 60s as one of a handful of iconic screen sirens in films including Pillow Talk, Love Me or Leave Me and The Man Who Knew Too Much.

She was married four times but only had one child, Terry Melcher, who died in 2004 after battling melanoma.

She is survived by her grandson, Ryan Melcher.

As well as starring in some of the most iconic Hollywood films of all time, Day was a Grammy-winning singer.

Her songs Sentimental Journey, Secret Love and Que Sera Sera have all been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
