Biography | show moreshow less
The first lyricist to win a Pulitzer Prize (1932, Of Thee I Sing), Ira Gershwin (1896-1983) wrote the lyrics to a number of the songs by his older brother, George, including "Liza", beginning in 1924 for the musical Lady Be Good. In 1931, the brothers wrote for their first Hollywood musical, Delicious. After George's death in 1937, Ira worked with a number of other composers, including Jerome Kern (Cover Girl, 1944) and Harold Arlen (the musical remake of A Star is Born, 1954). Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Song in 1937 (Shall We Dance?), 1944 (Cover Girl) and 1954 (A Star is Born), Ira also wrote lyrics or the music score for a number of other feature films, including An American in Paris (1951), The Country Girl (1954) and Funny Face (1957).
