A Hollywood screen legend, Doris Day remains the quintessential all-American girl. A huge film and music star during the 1950s and 1960s, Day's squeaky clean image and honey-toned voice made her one of the most popular entertainers of the 20th century.
Now 96 years old, she is rarely seen in public. But as a passionate advocate of animal rights, Day keeps herself busy at her home in California promoting the welfare of wildlife around the world through her Doris Day Animal Foundation.
Browse the gallery and recall the life and work of America's original "girl next door."
