Tony award-winning composer and sometimes actor Albert Hague may be visually recognizable to film and television buffs for his numerous film and television appearances, though it was his music for the television classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas that would touch generations of fans with it's whimsical melodies that accompanied the grumpy green Grinch's attempts to undermine the holiday spirit. Born Albert Marcuse in Berlin, the youngster and his mother would later flee Nazi Germany for the U.S. Adopted by a prominent eye surgeon upon his arrival, Hague studied music at the University of Cincinnati and met his future wife while working on a musical in Cleveland in 1948. Later composing for such popular Broadway shows as The Fig Leaves Are Falling and Miss Moffat (starring Bette Davis), the composer received a Tony for Redhead in 1959. Hague's television appearances include roles in Beauty and the Beast and Tales From the Dark Side with film appearances including Fame and Space Jam. On November 12, 2001, Albert Hague died in Inglewood, CA. He was 81.
