    A sad day, both a fine singer and actor, not too bad when asked to do drama rather than the fizzy comedies she made her name with. I say this every time someone of her generation dies but really she must be the last of Hollywood's golden era this time! :pac: Her two films opposite James Garner are worth a watch.

    Very sad.
    A very enjoyable part of my childhood was watching her films and listening to her lovely songs especially the film Calamity Jane.

    RIP Doris.

    Amazingly, Olivia De Havilland's still around, and sharp enough to be suing to protect her brand. She's 102! She was in "Gone With the Wind" in 1939 - 80 years ago. Damned impressive.

    Olivia de Havilland still breathing at time of writing, aged 102, just a few months older than Kirk Douglas who's also still around.

    Ms Kappelhoff (yes, that was her real name) was a mere sprite at only 97.

    the true meaning of a legend and great actress to boot.
    nothing and no one in hollywood today that compares.

    Whatever those old dears of Hollywood are having, I'll have some of that.

    Tristesse.

    Always liked Oscar Levant's line "It was Doris Day's first picture - that was before she became a virgin".

    Great voice. Few are as distinctive.
    A lot to be said for this for example:

    Im genuinely sad over this. Loved watching Doris Day movies when I was a kid and Calamity Jane is one of my favourite movies. Loved all the work she did for animals in her later life too. Might have a watch of Calamity Jane and The Man who knew Too Much at the weekend.

    Crazy to think that her only son was a music producer who turned down Charles Manson for a record deal and for a period of time he lived in the house where Sharon Tate and four others were murdered by Manson’s followers
