She was one of the top singers of the ’50s and ’60s and also starred in iconic films like Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much and Pillow Talk, co-starring Rock Hudson and James Garner. Day, now 97, has also been a staunch advocate and spokesperson for the welfare of animals throughout her life.
