George Gershwin (1898-1937)
Composer
Gershwin rose to fame on Broadway during the 1920s with musical comedies including Lady, Be Good; Tip-Toes; Oh, Kay!; Funny Face; and Girl Crazy. In Strike Up the Band, Of Thee I Sing, and Let ‘Em Eat Cake, Gershwin turned to political satire. Of Thee I Sing was the first musical comedy to win a Pulitzer Prize. He also wrote successful concert music, including Rhapsody in Blue and Concerto in F. In 1935, Gershwin moved to Hollywood, California, and turned his attention to films. He wrote Shall We Dance for Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and A Damsel in Distress for Astaire, Joan Fontaine, and Gracie Allen.
