Academy Award-winning musician Herbert Stothart led quite a successful career contributing to the soundtracks of major motion pictures. Stothart worked on a variety of projects during his early entertainment career, including "Devil May Care" (1929), "Dynamite" (1929) and "Golden Dawn" (1930). He also contributed to "Song of the Flame" (1930), "The Lottery Bride" (1930) and "The Rogue Song" with Lawrence Tibbett (1930). In the thirties, Stothart's music continued to appear on the silver screen, including in films like "Wife vs. Secretary" (1936) with Clark Gable, "The Robin Hood of El Dorado" (1936) with Warner Baxter and "Conquest" (1937) with Greta Garbo. Stothart was nominated for a Music (Scoring) Academy Award for "Sweethearts" in 1938 as well as for a Music (Original Score) Academy Award for "Marie Antoinette" in 1938. Stothart won a Music (Original Score) Academy Award for "The Wizard of Oz" in 1939. Stothart was most recently credited in the John C Reilly blockbuster animated feature "Wreck-It Ralph" (2012). After receiving this recognition, he wrote music that would be featured in the Mickey Rooney drama "National Velvet" (1944), the fantastical drama "A Guy Named Joe" (1944) with Spencer Tracy and the drama "The White Cliffs of Dover" (1944) with Irene Dunne. Stothart passed away in February 1949 at the age of 64.
