Photo, Print, Drawing [Portrait of Jerry Wald, Gordon MacRae, Mel Tormé, Marion Hutton, and Jerry Jerome, Saturday Teentimers Show, New York, N.Y., ca. Aug. 1947] Caption from Down Beat: Here is a little story in pictures taken by staffer Bill Gottlieb, who likes to be there when it happens. Although you can probably follow the near-tragedy without our subtitles, here goes. Characters--Jerry Wald, Gordon MacRae, Mel Torme, Marion Hutton and Jerry Jerome, in left to right order in the first photo. Scene: rehearsal of the Saturday Teentimers Show, on which only MacRae and Jerome are regulars. Plot: Wald, sharp as a tuning fork, hears something amiss in the harmonizing of MacRae, Torme and Hutton. An on-the-spot investigation, with all parties looking baffled, hurt and accusingly at each other. The culprit found and the problem resolved, all beam brightly as they continue in perfect harmony
