Looking over the history of the Academy Awards for best original song in a movie, you notice how many great songs won between "The Continental" and "The Shadow of Your Smile," before the great falling off that followed.
Which of these great musical geniuses of the time did not win an Academy Award?
Jimmy Van Heusen
For extra credit. name the nominated song(s) by the listed greats that failed to win though they were eligible. Also name some of the winners. And sing them.
I'm watching State Fair on TCM right now. Hence the thought. -- DL
