Three-time Oscar winner for his lush musical adaptations of Broadway musicals to film: "The King and I" (1956) and "Camelot" (1967), both in collaboration with Alfred Newman; and "Porgy and Bess" (1959), with Andre Previn. A leading musical scorer, conductor and songwriter in films from the late 1940s through the 60s, Darby wrote songs for "River of No Return," "Garden of Evil" (both 1954), "The Lieutenant Wore Skirts" (1955) and "Villa" (1958). He served as musical associate on the 1962 remake of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "State Fair" and, teamed with Alfred Newman, was Oscar-nominated for scoring Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific" (1958) and "Flower Drum Song" (1961) as well as "How the West Was Won" (1963).
