Doris was the daughter of famed Russia-born composer L. Wolfe Gilbert and his wife, Catherine Oestreicher.

The family moved from New York to Los Angeles when Doris was a girl, and she got into screenwriting at a young age thanks to her father's involvement writing songs for movies at Fox.[2] When she was still a teenager, she married lawyer Allen Feit, who she had met in NYC a year earlier.[3] She continued to write under her maiden name.

During the 1940s, she began working at Republic, where she wrote films like Storm Over Lisbon and Lake Placid Serenade. During the 1950s and 1960s, she wrote scripts for over a dozen television shows, including Science Fiction Theatre and Adventures of Superman.
