Doris Day Dies Aged 97

Hollywood actress Doris Day, who was known for her dozens of film appearances, passed away earlier this week at the age of 97.

Day, whose real name is Mary Ann Von Kappelhoff, died at her home in California after recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia, according to a statement issued by the Doris Day Animal Foundation.

The Hollywood icon requested "no funeral or memorial service and no grave marker", the statement noted.

Day made her feature film debut in 1948 in Romance On The High Seas. As well as her wholesome films, she was known for songs including Que Sera Sera, which she sang in Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much.
