Martin Melcher And Doris DayMartin Melcher with wife Doris Day
Martin Melcher and Doris Day got married on April 3, 1951. The marriage lasted for 17 years and ended when Melcher’s died in 1968. Melcher adopted Day’s son Terry and gave him his last name. Terry Melcher became a successful musician and record producer. Martin Melcher produced many of Day’s movies. They were both practicing Christian Scientists.
Doris Day was one of Hollywood’s biggest names, starring in more than 40 films during the Fifties and Sixties. But a compelling new biography reveals that, behind her girl-next-door image, lay a fatal weakness for violent and unsuitable men.
In part one of our serializations, we told how one lover planned to shoot her dead. Here, in the concluding part, another man drives her towards mental breakdown. Married for the third time and aged just 27, Doris Day desperately wanted to be the wholesome housewife she so often portrayed in her movies. But, once again, it wasn’t to be.
On the face of it, everything certainly looked perfect: she and her new husband Marty Melcher bought a beautiful home in Los Angeles, where Doris’s son from her first marriage, Terry, then seven, lived with them.
Terry later said what a difficult move this was. Until now, he had effectively had no mother – his grandmother Alma had been his only parent while Doris toured the country and made films. Seeing so much of Doris was rather a shock.
During Days years of fame, she experienced a sudden financial crisis, brought on by her husband who was also her manager and a lawyer from Beverly Hills. The two squandered her $20 million fortune and left her in debt. As documented by Forbes.
Martin Melcher husband and agent to Day, let the Beverly Hills lawyer named Jerome Rosenthal handle his wife’s money. Rosenthal poured it into careless investments, took kickbacks and then charged clients exorbitant fees to save face. The Investments included sham land bank bond transactions, doomed venture capital projects, bankrupt hotels, and shady oil and gas deals.
“My husband thought Rosenthal was a genius,” I was working away, knowing nothing and trusting.”Day said. After Melcher’s sudden death in 1968, Rosenthal tried to claim half of Day’s remaining fortune. Day sued him and during the lawsuit, sheriff’s deputies had to use force to get Rosenthal’s files.
