I saw this and unfortunately it's one of those incidents of not even realising she was still alive (heretofore). Her name was really famous and everyone knows Que Sera Sera -- don't think I've ever seen one of her films though.

Deeply saddened by this.

I was reading only yesterday that she was Mike Nichols’ first choice to play Mrs. Robinson in THE GRADUATE. That would have been something to see—and probably won her an Oscar!

Very saddened by this news.  I just recently watched one my favorite movies that she starred in: The Man Who Knew Too Much.

RIP Ms. Day.

Obviously a talented singer but also an underrated actress who rarely got serious roles thanks to wildly successful vehicles like PILLOW TALK.  Look no further than the aforementioned THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH where her slow build up of ultimately unbridled yet restrained heartache / agita at the reveal of her son's kidnapping (due to Jimmy Stewart giving her a tranquilizer) was arguably the most powerful moment in a pretty fair movie.  She was similarly effective and moving in the underrated (and deceptively titled) thriller MIDNIGHT LACE. 

Apparently no funeral, memorial or marker per her wishes.
