One Night of Love
One Night of Love wins the first Academy Award of Merit for “Best Music (Scoring)” at the 7th Academy Awards. The statuette was presented to Louis Silvers, head of the Columbia Studio Music Department, and not to the composers Victor Schertzinger and Gus Kahn. The name, Oscar, was not adopted by the Academy until 1939. The popular myth behind the name is that Academy librarian, Margaret Herrick, thought the award resembled her uncle Oscar. This title is not currently in the library system.
