Doris Day net worth and salary: Doris Day is an American actress, singer, real estate mogul and animal rights activist who has a net worth of $200 million dollars. Doris Day was born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff in Cincinnati, Ohio in April 1922. She began her career in 1939 as a singer who performed with Les Brown & His Band of Renown. She soon went solo and signed with Columbia Records. From 1947 to 1967 she had over 650 recordings. She was also a highly successful actress. Doris's first movie was Romance on the High Seas. She would eventually go on to appear in 39 feature films. She is the top ranked female box-office star of all time and is sixth among male and females. Day received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association's Career Achievement Award. She has released 31 albums and was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1971 she became involved with animal welfare and co-founded "Actors and Others for Animals". She later started the Doris Day Animal Foundation and the Doris Day Animal League. She was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2004. She has been married four times and had one son, the late music executive Terry Melcher. From 1968 to 1973 she starred in The Doris Day Show on CBS.

Finances: In the late 60s, Doris wound up discovering that she was broke. When her husband Martin Melcher died in 1968, Doris found out that Melcher and a business partner had squandered more than $20 million of her money, leaving her millions of dollars in debt. That's the equivalent of  wasting $140 million in today's dollars. Doris' son Terry, at the time a very successful and wealthy music executive, swooped in to secure her assets and save her estate from financial ruin. They were successfully able to get her finances in order and retain a valuable real estate portfolio that included houses in Malibu, Beverly Hills and several extremely valuable hotels. It took 10 years, but Doris did eventually receive a settlement from one of her former business managers who had been working with Martin Melcher. Today she lives in Carmel, California.
