WALTER KENT
Index card with four bars of music and lyrics from the 1943 hit I'll Be Home for Christmas, signed "With best wishes" by Oscar-winning composer Walter Kent in 1984
Inscribed autograph musical quotation signed: "3-31-84/With best wishes to/April Brooks/from/Walter Kent", 5x3 index card. He has handwritten words and music, four measures of I'll Be Home for Christmas. Kent (1911-1994) composed music for TV, films and the Broadway stage, but he is best remembered for two sentimental hits of World War II (There'll Be Bluebirds Over) the White Cliffs of Dover (1941) and I'll Be Home for Christmas (1943). Kent wrote the music for both, with lyrics provided by Nat Burton (for "Dover") and James "Kim" Gannon for Christmas. I'll Be Home for Christmas, a bit hit for Bing Crosby in 1943 and a sentimental favorite covered by dozens of artists since, was the most requested song at USO Christmas shows all around the world. Kent also shared two Oscar nominations for Best Music, Original Song with Gannon (Too Much in Love from 1944's Song of the Open Road and Endlessly from 1945's Earl Carroll Vanities). Fine condition.
