*Doris Mary Ann von Kappelhoff  is an American singer, actress, and animal welfare advocate known as Doris Day. A vivacious blonde with a wholesome image, Day was one of the most prolific actresses of the 1950s and 1960s. Able to sing, dance, and play comedy and dramatic roles, she is considered by some to be an all-round star. She has almost 40 films to her credit and has recorded approximately 45 albums and her personality has permeated many popular movies..

During the 1990s, interest in Day revived. The release of a greatest hits CD in 1992 placed her into the British charts, and the inclusion of the song "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" in the soundtrack of the Australian film, Strictly Ballroom gained her new fans. During the late 1990s/early 2000s, the progressive release of her films and TV series/specials on DVD fed into this renewal of interest in and respect for her work.

In 2004, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom but declined to attend the ceremony because of a fear of flying. She has turned down a tribute offer from the American Film Institute, but did receive, and went to LA to accept, the Golden Globe's Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in 1989; she did not accept an invitation to be a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honor for undisclosed reasons.Miss Day received a long-overdue Grammy for Lifetime Achievement (Music) in February 2008.

A major new biography of Day is due to be released in 2008. *
