A prolific composer, Hugo Friedhofer had a career that spanned early silent film through the sound era, into the 1970s. Friedhofer became the leading orchestrator for Max Steiner, Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Alfred Newman soon after his 1929 arrival in Hollywood. He went on to compose music for over 120 films, earning 9 Oscar nominations and receiving the award for his masterful score to The Best Years of Our Lives in 1946.
This video pays tribute to the legendary film composer, Hugo Wilhelm Friedhofer, who received a much-deserved Oscar in 1946 for his brilliant, much lauded score for the William Wyler directed film, "The Best Years of Our Lives". Friedhofer's score, which was analysed in several serious musicological journals at the time, presently ranks sixth in the American Film Institute's list of the 100 Greatest Film Scores of All Time.
