    Doris Day obituary
    Actor and singer whose wholesome image made her one of Hollywood’s top box-office stars of the 1950s and 60s

    Doris Day with Ronald Reagan in the baseball movie The Winning Team, 1952.

    Doris Day, who has died aged 97, was a singer who came out of the big-band boom of the 1940s to become one of Hollywood’s top box-office stars throughout the 50s and 60s. She had a honey voice, short, buttercup-coloured hair, a sunny smile – and as many scruples as freckles. If Marilyn Monroe was the “girl downtown” at 20th Century Fox, Day was the archetypal “girl next door” at Warners.

    Day was first seen as a spunky but naive showgirl in more than a dozen candyfloss Warner Bros musicals between 1948 and 1955. Then, from 1959 until her retirement from the big screen in 1968, she became a sophisticated urban woman defending her honour and independence in a series of glossy, sex-battle romantic comedies for Universal Studios.

    I too am surprised by the negligible reaction, as reflected here in our forum as well.

    Oh, well. Sic transit gloria mundi, I guess. "Thus passes the glory of the world."

    I had a massive crush on her at one time, I'm sorry to see her go.
    “It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass."

    No matter what role she played her acting made you feel good. Miss Doris Day is a neighbor you like to have living next door.

    Well said, my friend. Doris Day was the girl next door, then the woman next door. Sincerity wafted from her like a pleasant scent.
