That's disappointing. I can't say I was a mega-fan, but her music was pleasant listening and her movies were often great fun; her romantic comedies defined the genre. I also admired her work in animal welfare.

At least she lived a long and fulfilling life...I was getting rather tired of seeing celebrities in their 40s and 50s dying as of late.

Our dear Dodo has left the building.

She will certainly be missed.

I know very little about her, other than that Megadeth's "Countdown to Extinction" was the first metal song to win a Doris Day award.

Que sera sera. What will be will be.

The thing about Doris Day is that her movies made people happy. Maybe most of them aren’t exactly critically acclaimed masterpieces, but she gave many moments of happiness to many people for many years.

I also respect her love and respect for Rock Hudson. She was ahead of her time.

I didn't know, until rather recently, that she was a Big Band singer before her acting career.

She lived a tremendously long and fulfilling life.

I remember reading that she was surprised that that song became her biggest hit. She thought of it as just a kid’s song.

It’s in several of her movies. Firstly, in the sole Alfred Hitchcock film she’s in. They didn’t really hit it off, apparently.

It was also the theme song of at least one of her sitcoms from the late 60s-early 70s.

It’s catchy. I used to sing it to my little boy.

Great... It’s in my head now!

...I first heard.it that way, as the theme to that show, presumably.a new version - which kept changing its format/set-up, season to season...Ond year she was a widowed mother living on a farm, next year she'd moved to the city and was living alone - It was the same series, it ran four or five seasons but I never seemed to see it derun :roll: .
In the Eighties she had a series for Disney Channel where she interviewed fellow celebrities about her pets - Rock Hudson was on it and he looked so scrawny.and wasted that that led to his infection with AIDS :( getting revealed.
