Did You Know?


Farnham's Oscar win for Title Writing (May 16, 1929) made him the only winner of such an Oscar because the category was abolished after the first Academy Awards. Farnham also has the curious distinction of being the very first Oscar winner to die when he passed away two years after his victory. See more »
