The Collection of Robert Israel, composer of the ABC World News Tonight theme
Robert Israel was a composer, music producer and founder of the Emmy Award-winning Score Productions. His company created some of the most widely recognized television and film music for network and cable news programming, primetime and daytime dramas, game shows, sports events, animated series, television movies and documentaries. His iconic news theme for ABC World News Tonight heralded historic and important news events throughout American history. Born and raised in New York City, Israel, a classically trained pianist with a passion for jazz, also had a vast knowledge of film with a particular interest in movies produced during the 1920s-1940s. His work brought him into close contact with artists he greatly admired such as Noel Coward, Maurice Chevalier, and the creative team that worked with Charlie Chaplin. His adoration of film from that golden era of cinema is reflected in his carefully curated, life-long collection of posters and related film and stage memorabilia.

Recognizing the importance of the performing arts to the fabric of New York, and the terrible toll the pandemic and recent strikes have taken on the entertainment community, Doyle is proud to donate 10% of our profit from this auction to the Entertainment Community Fund.

The Entertainment Community Fund (formerly The Actors Fund)

A special section of the auction comprising lots 5001 - 5019 will feature celebrity memorabilia presented by the Entertainment Community Fund. While a portion of proceeds from every item in the auction will benefit the Fund, 100% of the hammer price of the lots in this section goes entirely to the Entertainment Community Fund.

A highlight of this section is the stunning pink double-breasted velvet tuxedo jacket worn by Daniel Craig to the world premiere of No Time To Die at London's Royal Albert Hall on September 28, 2021.
