Mini Bio (1)
Sondheim's work as a composer-lyricist over the past four decades has set the standard for modern American musical theater. He has won a record seven Tony Awards for his songwriting, and received a Pulitzer Prize for Sunday in the Park with George. Sondheim was an unpaid and uncredited clapper boy on Beat the Devil (1953). He tried out as a contestant on The $64,000 Question (1955) in 1955. While not chosen, he did correctly identify 19 of the 21 films John Ford had directed up to that point.
