If the recognition of one’s peers is the true measure of success, then few men are as successful as composer, arranger, and conductor Henry Mancini. In a career that spanned 40 years, writing for film and television, Mancini won four Oscars and twenty Grammys, the all-time record for a pop artist. For 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s alone, Mancini won five Grammys and two Oscars. Breakfast at Tiffany’s includes the classic Moon River (lyrics by Johnny Mercer), arguably one of the finest pop songs of the last 50 years. At last count, there were over 1,000 recordings of it. His other notable songs include Dear Heart, Days of Wine and Roses (one Oscar, two Grammys), and Charade, the last two with lyrics by Mercer. He also had a number one record and won a Grammy for Nino Rota’s Love Theme From Romeo and Juliet. Among his other notable film scores are The Pink Panther (three Grammys), Hatari! (one Grammy), Victor/Victoria (an Oscar), Two for the Road, Wait Until Dark, and 10. His television themes include Peter Gunn (two Grammys, recorded by many rock artists), Mr. Lucky (two Grammys), Newhart, Remington Steele, and The Thorn Birds television mini-series.
