RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Versatile composer whose scores enlivened some of Hollywood's finest films from the early 1930s through the late 60s. Newman was equally at home with musicals ("Broadway Melody of 1936" 1935), melodramas ("Stella Dallas" 1937, "Wuthering Heights" 1939), comedies ("The Seven Year Itch" 1955) and spectacular period pieces ("The Greatest Story Ever Told" 1965). He collaborated several times with director John Ford ("Drums Along the Mohawk" 1939, "The Grapes of Wrath" 1940, etc.). Sons David and Thomas are also film composers.
