"Que Sera Sera", "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" and "Sentimental Journey". She was never crude or over-the-top or even, really, suggestive; she was just sexy.

"She's the girl every guy should marry", a critic wrote in the Saturday Review. They'd all be trouble.

All of the upheaval in Doris Day's life, however, was kept in the background.

We will, Ms. Day, and we will miss you terribly.

Amongst the tributes, George Takei tweeted: "For those of us in my generation, Doris Day was synonymous with Hollywood icon".

Day had recently celebrated her 97th birthday, and had reportedly spent it with close friends.

Xavier Garbajosa quitte La Rochelle et pourrait rejoindre Montpellier
La Rochelle a officialisé lundi le départ à la fin de la saison de son entraîneur des trois quarts, Xavier Garbajosa (42 ans). L'ancien international français (32 sélections) était arrivé au club en 2015, à la demande de Patrice Collazo, alors manager.


A marriage at 17 to trombonist Al Jorden ended when, she said, he beat her when she was eight months' pregnant.

She had one child, music producer Terry Melcher by her third husband, but he sadly died from melanoma in 2004.

Her first film was Romance on the High Seas in 1948, which led to her agreeing a contract with Warner Brothers. The two were together from 1946 to 1949.

The title track is a cover of Etting's biggest hit, originally recorded in 1928, and Day's expressive vocals convey a tangible sense of resignation and regret as she sings: "Do you remember when you loved me once?"

At the pinnacle of her fame in the 1950s and early 1960s she was one of the most recognisable women in the world, headlining musicals such as Calamity Jane (1953) and chaste relationship comedies such as Pillow Talk (1959) and That Touch of Mink (1962). The latter became known as Rock Hudson's last TV appearance - he guested while visibly ill amid rumors he was dying of AIDS complications.

In addition to her recordings and her radio, TV and film work, Day was known later in life for her activism with animals.

She later won a $22 million lawsuit against a man hired by Melcher to invest her money.

New success came, however, with "The Doris Day Show" on television, which ran for four seasons.

After retiring from performing, Day worked mainly with the Doris Day Animal Foundation, helping abused animals.

After retiring from acting, she became a tireless animal rights activist, running a pet-friendly hotel in California.

She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004, and the Grammys gifted her a Lifetime Achievement prize in 2008.

"Visiting her in her Californian home was like going to an animal sanctuary where her many dogs were taken care of in splendid style", he said in a statement.
