Academy Awards® - 1955

MUSIC (Music Score of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture)
* The High and the Mighty -- Dimitri Tiomkin

The Caine Mutiny -- Max Steiner

Genevieve -- Larry Adler [NOTE: Because of the political climate of the times, 'Genevieve''s arranger and orchestra conductor Muir Mathieson was credited as composer on American prints of this British-made film, and was thus credited with the nomination. In June of 1986, the Board of Governors had Academy records updated to give Larry Adler his proper credit, which Mr. Mathieson had never claimed. Mr. Mathieson's name was removed from the nomination and Mr. Adler's inserted.]
