Once a Hollywood legend, Doris Day is now an ageing recluse called Clara
Doris Clara, Hollywood legend, 84 years old, but still looks wonderful. Nothing is last forever. One way or another it gets us all in the end!
She enchanted a generation with her golden locks, pretty face and wholesome image.
Today it is only those trademark tresses that offer a clue to her identity.
Doris Day, 84, has changed her name to Clara Kappelhoff and turned her back on Hollywood to live a reclusive lifestyle in rural California.
Seen out shopping with a female friend in her hometown of Carmel, it is hard to believe she was one of the most prolific actresses of the 1950s and 60s.
Her face is devoid of make-up, her hair is untidy and she is dressed in jogging bottoms and trainers.
