Alfred Newman (March 17, 1900 – February 17, 1970) was an American composer, arranger, and conductor of film music. In a career spanning more than four decades, Newman composed the scores for over 200 motion pictures. His most famous scores include Wuthering Heights, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Mark of Zorro, How Green Was My Valley, The Song of Bernadette, Captain from Castile, All About Eve, Love is a Many Splendored Thing, Anastasia, The Diary of Anne Frank, How The West Was Won, The Greatest Story Ever Told, and his final score, Airport, all of which were nominated for or won Academy Awards. Newman was also highly regarded as a conductor, and arranged and conducted many scores by other composers. In addition, he conducted the music for many film adaptations of Broadway musicals (having worked on Broadway for ten years before coming to Hollywood), as well as many original Hollywood musicals. Along with such composers as Max Steiner, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and Franz Waxman, Newman was among the first composers to write original music for motion pictures, although unlike most of his colleagues, Newman did not write any music other than for film. He was one of the most respected film score composers of his time, and is today regarded as one of the greatest musicians ever to work in film. His nine Academy Award wins remains the record for a composer, while his total of forty-five nominations makes him the third-most nominated individual after Walt Disney and John Williams.
