Movie star and gay icon Doris Day has died of pneumonia at the age of 97.
The Hollywood actress, who starred alongside her gay friend Rock Hudson in the 1959 movie Pillow Talk and the 1961 film Lover Come Back, only recently celebrated her birthday by enjoying “quiet dinners” with “dear old friends out of town’, as she told the Hollywood Reporter.
Day, who married four times, was unquestionably one of Hollywood’s brightest stars during the 1950s & ’60s. She made her final film, With Six You Get Eggroll, in 1968.
In her later years she lived in Monterey, California, and devoted much of her time to the Doris Day Animal Foundation.
