    Sad news - for some reason she is one of those people who made me think "did she already pass away a few years ago, or is she still with us?" She is no longer with us now.

    I wondered whether she always autographed her name "D Day" (the same for Darren Day as well?) Ironic then that the 75th anniversary of D-Day itself will be next month.

    Whenever I hear Que Sera-Sera (and I suppose this goes for a lot of 1980s kids growing up), I always have in my mind that Birds Eye Steakhouse Grills advert from the mid 1980s which went "will it be chips or jacket spuds?, will it be salad or frozen peas?" with the sub-Auf Weidersehen Pet builders in the transit van. The irony of the "Auf Weidersehen" phrase is that I often used to confuse Day with Vera Lynn, and I am certain that I was not the only person to do so growing up.

    A sad Day for the demise of Doris Day.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Was it Doris Day who starred in that film about her dying & being sent back by St Peter to do good works?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Day also appeared in Pillow Talk (often shown on Sunday afternoon BBC 1 in the 1980s and 1990s, probably after the omnibus edition of EastEnders).

    Very sad news that Doris Day has passed away. She had that girl next door look about her, extremely appealing, and was just the kind of girl your mother would want you to bring home. I thought she was a very good singer and accomplished actress, at her best in light, romantic comedies. Interestingly, the film that Marilyn Monroe was making when she died, Something's got to Give, was made a year or so later as Move Over, Darling, with Doris Day as female lead. Her best song? Well, my favourites are actually Move Over, Darling and Que Sera Sera. RIP Doris Day.

    I am gutted to hear of Doris' passing as with my all my heart I have always loved Que Sera, Sera - what beautiful, beautiful song


    To think this onee Song was the one Song or even musical that made Dorris and is still loved today by Millions is amazing in the extreme no doubts

    For me that Song will always now be and always was linked to the Royale Family and Nana's passing on-screen), emotionaly acred by Sue Johnston, Nana and Caroline Aherene RIP. I will never forget that as it is almost un-watchable adding such a beautiful beautiful song to such a sad sence

    Doris too equaly made Que Sara Sara her own through the origibnial version in the Film and dressing her little Boy that way and having fun in the Film reminds me of past times how my late Grandad and Great Auntie tried to instill (and did - correct manners into me). That for me was the sign of a real, real Middle England/Elegent american Lady with real style and real respect as Dorris clearly acted to a "T" in those scences!!

    What beautiful beautiful Lady (and I truly mean Lady in the truest sense - of ultimate class type) that Dorris really truly was

    RIP Dorris Day

    VERY SAD NEWS INDEED.

    I NEVER KNEW WHO SANG QUE SERA SERA UNTIL NOW.
    A FEW OF HER QUOTES
    Any girl can look glamorous... just stand there and look stupid.



    If it's true that men are such beasts, this must account for the fact that most women are animal lovers.

    Truly underrated, both as an actress and singer! Those three films she made with Rock Hudson looked effortless, simply because the two leads' skill, chemistry and charisma made them seem so!

    I have had Doris Day records (78s) in my collection since I was very young. Part of my life has gone. RIP Ms. Kappelhoff!
