He was nominated for an Oscar Honor for his contribution towards the soundtrack for the 1953 film Genevieve. He went away to NEW YORK to go after an acting profession. Once there, he broke into theater because of the suggestion of famous performer Rudy Vallée. He was nominated for an Oscar in 1953 for his focus on “Genevieve” regardless of the actual fact that he had not been acknowledged in the U.S. edition due to blacklisting. He wedded Eileen Walser in 1952, divorced her, and wedded Sally Cline in 1959. His sibling Jerry also became a renowned harmonica participant. He happened in high esteem by composers like Ralph Vaughan Williams and Arthur Benjamin. Both performers wrote pieces designed for him.
