Doris Day dies aged 97
I loved her from first seeing her - a lovely looking woman with a voice to match, an excellent actress, a light comedian, singer - what more do you want?
What a shame her private life had so many bad moments. Her first marriage was with a wife-beater, her second failed because they were incompatible, her third husband cheated her and left her bankrupt and her fourth didn't last long. Yet it never affected her performances.
Her real surname was Kappelhoff which means a church or Chapel although Hoff is a bit vague and could mean a court, (as in courtyard) or a small town)
