Remembering Hollywood icon Doris Day

Clip: 05/13/2019 | 2m 39s

Doris Day died Monday at her home in Carmel Valley, California, at age 97. Day was one of the most bankable box office stars of her generation, a popular and prolific leading lady who came to resent her wholesome, girl-next-door image, calling it “boring.” But her personal life was more turbulent, with a series of failed marriages and financial troubles. John Yang remembers a Hollywood icon.
