Laraine Day est une actrice américaine, née Lauraine Johnson à Roosevelt (Utah) le 13 octobre 1920, morte à Ivins (Utah) le 10 novembre 2007.
Elle apparaît au cinéma entre 1937 et 1956, et à la télévision, dans deux téléfilms et des séries, de 1951 à 1986.
Une étoile lui est dédiée sur le Walk of Fame d'Hollywood Boulevard.
Day's first marriage was to singer turned airport executive, James Ray Hendricks in 1942. The couple adopted three children: Christopher, Angela and Michelle. Day filed for divorce from Hendricks in December 1946. Day was granted an interlocutory divorce from Hendricks on January 20, 1947, which required her to wait one year before remarrying.
On January 21, 1947, Day traveled to Juarez, Mexico where she received a second divorce decree. Later that day, she traveled to El Paso, Texas, where she married baseball manager Leo Durocher. Upon returning to California, the judge who granted Day's interlocutory divorce from Hendricks stated that the Mexican divorce she received was not legal and, since she failed to wait the one year period for her divorce to become final, deemed her Texas marriage illegal as well. After waiting approximately one year, Day and Durocher remarried on February 16, 1948, in Santa Monica, California. During her marriage to Durocher, Day was often referred to as "The First Lady of Baseball". While Durocher was managing the New York Giants, she wrote, Day With the Giants (1952). In 1952, she wrote and published another book entitled The America We Love. She was also the host of Day With the Giants, a 15-minute television interview program broadcast before New York Giants home games. Day and Durocher divorced in June 1960.
On March 7, 1961, Day married television producer Michael Grilikhes. She and Grilikhes had two daughters, Dana Laraine (born November 13, 1962) and Gigi (born October 6, 1964). After their births, Day rarely appeared in films, and only occasionally appeared on TV, usually portraying matronly types.
Day was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Throughout her life she never swore, smoked, or drank any kind of alcohol, coffee or tea. Until her death in 2007 she retained her Mormon faith stating that, "It brings me comfort in a confusing world".
In 1961 she appeared with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in their production of Let Freedom Ring which was an inspirational one hour program dedicated to the spirit of American Freedom.
