Agree Dorine, the hat is v similar to what Irene would have done for DD- however, it is more for a high flying career woman such as Carol Templeton, rather than an out of work struggling single gal such as Cathy Timberlake (albeit stylish gal)!!!

Dorine, the picture you posted caught my eye also, think I saw it on Simplydodo, so I added color to it and posted it on my Doris page on Facebook also. :wink:

Think I called it "Day In The Night"

Melancholy, the hat is the one she wore in the courtroom scene from "Lover, Come Back." She seems to have worn many of her LCB outfits during this New York outing.

Of course, it's Les Brown on the left side of the third shot. Does anyone know who the other two may be?

Have no clue about the tall fellow on the right, but am wondering if the one between Brown and Doris could be Al Levy, who would become her agent.

Al Levy dealt with Doris long AFTER she was with Les Brown. She met him in L.A. when she and George went there to live, but he could not find a job. So, they were well away from the band life.

I don't want to belabor the point about identifying the others in the photo with Les Brown and Doris, but in her biography Doris says, "An agent named Al Levy, who was associated with the Century Artists agency [which had an office in New York], had been coming to the Pennsylvania Hotel and had been urging me to try to make a career for myself." So Levy and Doris already knew each other while she was still singing with Brown and well before Levy became her agent.

Oh, don't worry about the details. Most fans want to know *exactly* what took place. I don't remember reading that, but it's been years and years since I've read Doris' book.

Well, if they knew each other then that explained why she took the job in New York when she and George were in a pinch. She probably felt comfortable that Al would be there to help her. I thought she went to NY so that Alma and Terry could meet her there and stay with her during her gig in NY. They probably did that anyway.

No wonder George got a little peeved.

I thought that Al was in L.A. and that they sent him to N.Y. after they discovered that she was watching Doris from the rafters in the lighting area. And she must have called him at Century Artists in L.A. when she was looking for a job. She wouldn't have called an agent in N.Y. Guess I'll go back and read the book again.

Thanks for the correction.
Lauren

Lauren,
You are correct that Century Artists transferred Levy permanently from L.A. to New York after Doris returned from New York. This excerpt from Billboard magazine dated 8/14/48 explains: "Al Levy of Century Artists will switch berths with Dick Dorso of the firm's New York office. Levy leaves for Gotham this weekend [and] Dorso will share Hollywood work with Marty Melcher." And another excerpt from the same source dated 10/15/49: "Agent Al Levy dissolved partnership ties with Century Artists this week, selling out to Dick Dorso and Marty Melcher for $60,000, it was announced here." It was nice to have those dates, as Doris's bio with Hotchner isn't specific at all.

You are a very, very good Doris Day Detective. I would just say that I, personally, do not think that either one of those fellows in the photo is Al Levey. Those guys could be anyone in the world at that time. While I accept the proposition that Al was looking out for Doris in terms of a new job, my guess is that being a professional and working for Century Artists that his conversations with Doris were private and would not have included Les Brown even in a jovial confrontation such as the photo suggests.

I think that Brown would have wanted the best for Doris and probably new that he couldn't hold a talent such as her forever, I'm not sure that an agent of her would have been associating with her boss even casually.

But good work, Judy!

Lauren,
Thank you; research is my avocation. Your point about Levy well taken. Hadn't even considered that. I do wonder who those two men are, though.
