Began his film career with UFA in 1930 and scored a number of German films before leaving the country in 1934. Waxman subsequently moved to the US, where he emerged as one of Hollywood's finest and most prolific composers of the 1940s and 50s. Adept at psychologically laden scores and romantic or fantastic material, Waxman contributed to several Hitchcock films, notably "Rebecca" (1940) and "Rear Window" (1954); other outstanding credits include "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935), "The Philadelphia Story" (1940), "Mr. Skeffington" (1944), "Humoresque" (1946) and "Sunset Boulevard" (1950).
