Overview

Known as broadly for her incredible acting career as for her astounding voice and such songs as "Secret Love" and "Que Sera, Sera," Doris Day was an international star and an American icon. She was the idyllic attractive blonde whose swishing skirts were envied by girls and women across the world. For all her flashing renown and fame, however, Day’s private life was a much darker and more tragic affair. She had four different husbands, the third of whom—Marty Melcher—squandered her $20 million fortune and left Day with $500,000 worth of debt after his death. For the past 20 years, she has devoted much of her time to animals, running an animal "hotel" at her home as well as an animal ambulance service. This beautifully illustrated biography tells the remarkable story of a screen legend and documents an off-camera life filled with heartbreaking twists and remarkable turns.
