Thanks for these latest photos, Peter. Doris really nailed that scene in That Touch of Mink; so funny!

Thank you Ania for these terrific photos.

The photo of Doris with Alfred Hitchcock is really sweet.

I love the photo of Doris with the black cat.

I don't think these are Doris, are they, Ania? :) The top one definitely isn't! The woman's face and arms in the other one look too heavy to be Doris and the kitchen/washroom looks too small and drab for a movie star!

Love the affectionate one with Hitchcock! 8)

Hi Bryan,

I agree that the top photo is not Doris but the photo of the woman washing the dog definitely is Doris.

Doris had special buildings on her properties for both dogs and cats. I recall an article about Doris tripping on a mattress in a building designed just for her cats resulting in her hurting her hand.

The article also stated that Doris enjoyed rising early each day to prepare homemade food to feed both her cats and dogs.

Sorry to be a Doubting Thomas, Johnny, but it really doesn't look like her to me. Do you have a link to the article or to a caption to the photo?

Hi all,

Could the lady be Sheila Smith, the lady who worked with Doris is Beverly Hills around 1979?

Found a lost picture (lost by me) back.

Hi Bryan,


If I come across the article which I read in a book or magazine, I will let you know. Doris took an active role in caring for her animals.

I thought this photo in a close- up looked like Doris without make-up around the eyes and mouth. It looks like a 1970's photo with wallpaper popular in that period matching the counter. The wood around the lead glass windows suggests an upscale building. The cheese board on the wall is an interesting touch. If it is a 1970's photo, it would mean Doris still lived in Beverly Hills. She moved to Carmel in 1980.

But who knows? There is a strong possibility that I am mistaken.

The photo of Bob Hope and Doris is a real treasure.

I love the fun and spontaneity this picture captures.

It is new to me.

Thank you so much Peter.

Hi All,
Sheila Smith posted on Facebook those pics of Doris washing the dog. Sheila is the one holding a dog, and Doris is doing the washing. She worked for Doris in the 1970's.
Cute pics.
Cheers,
Jill

Thank you Ania for these wonderful photos of Doris, Marty and Terry. They look so happy together.

I especially like the photo of Doris and Danny Thomas. It is new to me.

The Contour chair advertisement is also new to me.

Ania, thanks for these rare photos. I believe those with the Melchers were taken at the Warner Ranch where the location shots for Calamity Jane were filmed. Doris's love for animals was apparent.

The crisp BW photos of Doris, Marty and Terry are stunning. So wonderful to see her in nature and posing with those beautiful horses. Doris looked absolutely gorgeous in this setting.

Thank you, Ania.

Hi Peter,

These Doris photos are true treasures. I have not seen them before.

They facinating newspaper article dated October 14, 1937 describes the car crash and Doris planned trip to Hollywood. It is clear Doris was becoming well known in Cincinnati by age 16.

The June 6- 1939 poster photo of Doris shows admission price was forty cents to the show. Doris looks like a brunette in this photo but I suspect it was because of poor lighting.

The beauty on the porch photo of Doris is dated October 1 - 1940 and days Doris had left the Bob Crosby band weeks before and joined the Les Brown band two weeks before (mid September).

These interesting timelines were never precisely or accurately described in any in the several books I have read on Doris. They are important dates in the evolution of Doris' career.

Thanks again Peter for sharing these important photos. Just amazing!
Johnny

Peter, you've done it again with this set of rare clippings!

Seeing these ads reminded me that Doris also sang with the Jimmy James orchestra, I think sometime in 1943. One place James and Doris appeared included the Netherland Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati. There are some really nice photos of its still gorgeous interior at "Netherland Plaza Hotel Cincinnati youtube." At 1:12 of the video, you can see the Pavilion Caprice ballroom, the exact venue of those performances. If you watch it, just imagine what a thrill it must've been for a young vocalist to sing there.

Thank you Ania for these great Doris photos. Three of the pictures are new to me.

Doris looks sensational in yellow.

The photo of Doris and Marty sharing a milkshake is really sweet.
