Celebrating the late, great screen legend Doris Day on what would have been her 98th birthday

The top photo is Doris Day last year on her 97th birthday. She died six weeks later.

So let’s celebrate Miss Day on what would have been her 98th birthday.

It was a nice, long life for one of the biggest movie stars of the 1940s, 50s and 60s (Calamity Jane, Pillow Talk, The Pajama Game, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Lullaby of Broadway), a huge TV star in the 70s (The Doris Day Show) and a huge recording star (Secret Love, Que Sera, Sera).

She all but retired from showbiz in the mid-70s but did re-emerge in the 80s to host the show Doris Day and Friends and in 1989 was presented with the Cecil B. Demille Award at the Golden Globe Awards. Miss Day also received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004 and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement in 2006. No doubt she would have received an honorary Academy Award for her film career if she would’ve agreed to attend the ceremony.

We didnt often see Miss Day in public in her later years but she seemed got be having a happy life in Carmel where she lived for many years.
