Biography

The songwriting and screenwriting duo of Betty Comden and Adolph Green created a few of the most enduring and beloved music comedies from the post-war era, reaching their apex with 1952’s Singin’ in the torrential rain, widely acclaimed because the greatest film music available. Comden was created Elizabeth Basya Comden on, may 3, 1919, in NEW YORK, studying research before pursuing a profession in acting; through the later ’30s, she befriended Green, himself an aspiring professional aswell, and jointly they produced the Revuers with pal Judy Tuvim. Financial restrictions compelled the trio to create their own materials and jointly, Comden and Green became more and more adept at composing lyrics and librettos; their friend Leonard Bernstein was sufficiently impressed more than enough to request the duo to focus on his musical adaptation from the Jerome Robbins ballet Fancy Totally free, retitled Out. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1944 and was an instantaneous smash; Comden and Green following collaborated with composer Morton Gould on 1945’s Mil Money Baby before heeding the decision of Hollywood for the 1947 display screen musical VERY GOOD NEWS. BOTH Barkleys of Broadway and Consider Me Out to the PASTIME debuted 2 yrs later, combined with the film version of Out; ironically, Singin’ in the torrential rain had not been a box-office achievement during its original launch, but is currently the gold regular by which film musicals are judged. After completing focus on another film masterpiece, 1953’s The Music group Wagon, Comden and Green came back their concentrate to Broadway, reuniting with Bernstein for Amazing Town; a protracted cooperation with Jule Styne yielded some strikes, including Two within the Aisle, Peter Skillet, Hallelujah, Baby!, and Bells Are Buzzing, the latter offering fellow Revuers alum Tuvim (or, mainly because she was right now far better known, Judy Holliday). 1955’s IT CERTAINLY IS Fair Weather shut out the duo’s long haul at MGM plus they shifted to Warner Bros. for 1958’s Auntie Mame, concurrently co-starring within their personal two-person stage display. 1964’s satirical Just what a Strategy to use was their last screen cooperation and in the years to check out, their stage tasks appeared less often aswell, although 1970’s Applause and 1978’s Over the Twentieth Hundred years recaptured the glories of the past. With 1991’s The Will Rogers Follies, Comden and Green came back with their rightful prominence, gaining a Tony Prize for their initiatives; that same calendar year, these were also announced as recipients of the annual Kennedy Middle Honors. Additionally, she actually is a member from the Songwriters Hall of Popularity and the Theater Hall of Popularity and in 1995, Comden released her autobiography Off Stage.

#Fact
1 When writing Singin' in the Rain (1952) with Adolph Green at MGM, many studio personnel had been around since the silent days, and their recollections were the source for gags about the perils of early sound filming. One came from costume designer Walter Plunkett, who contributed to the comical scene in Singin' in the Rain (1952) where the actors are shooting an early talking film. Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) taps Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) on the shoulder with her fan but causes a thunderous noise on the soundtrack by disturbing a microphone hidden in Lockwood's clothing. This was based on a similar incident during a film on which Walter Plunkett worked at RKO, Rio Rita (1929) starring Bebe Daniels and John Boles.
2 Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1980.
3 Their 60-year collaboration was such that many believed Betty Comden and Adolph Green, whose musicals won five Tony Awards, were married. Instead, the beautiful music they made together graced the stage and screen, and included the classic Broadway musical "On the Town" and the film "Singin' in the Rain." On Broadway, Comden and Green (the billing was always alphabetical) worked most successfully with composers Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne and Cy Coleman. The duo wrote lyrics and often the books for more than a dozen shows, many of them built around such stars as Rosalind Russell, Judy Holliday, Phil Silvers, Carol Burnett and Lauren Bacall. Among their Tonys, three were for best musical for their shows "Wonderful Town," "Hallelujah, Baby!" and "Applause." The duo received the Kennedy Center honors in 1991. "It's a kind of radar," Comden once said of her partnership with Green. "We don't divide the work up, taking different scenes. We sit in the same room always. I used to write things down in shorthand. I now sit at the typewriter. Adolph paces more. A lot of people don't believe this, but at the end of the day we usually don't remember who thought up what.".
4 Has won seven Tony Awards, always with collaborator Adolph Green: in 1953, lyrics as part of Best Musical win for "Wonderful Town;" in 1968, as Best Composer and Lyricist, with Jule Styne, and lyrics as part of Best Musical win for "Hallelujah, Baby!;" in 1970, book as part of Best Musical win for "Applause;" in 1978, as Best Score, lyrics with music by Cy Coleman, and Best Book (Musical) for "On the Twentieth Century;" and in 1991, as Best Score (Musical), lyrics with music by Coleman, for "The Will Rogers Follies." In addition, the team of Comden and Green received five other nominations: in 1957, book with music by Styne for Best Musical nominee "Bells Are Ringing;" in 1961, lyrics with music by Styne for Best Musical nominee "Do Re Mi;" in 1983, for Best Score, lyrics with music by Larry Grossman, and Best Book (Musical) for "A Doll's Life;" and in 1986, Best Book (Musical) for "Singin' in the Rain," the stage version of their signature film, Singin' in the Rain (1952).
5 Daughter Suzanne attended the original Woodstock Music Festival (1969).
6 Predeceased by her husband, Steven Kyle, and son, Alan.

1 [on Vincente Minnelli]: Vincente was a highly visual director. It was very important to him where an ashtray was placed; it could not be an eighth of an inch out of the way.
2 I remember the first time we were referred to as Comden and Green. I hated it, and not because I hated the team. Far from it. It was Frank Loesser who introduced us that way, and it felt so personal, as if we were objects and always went together with an 'and.'
