With an Oscar to his name, Ned Washington made an indelible impression on the film landscape. Washington began his entertainment career with his music featured in films like "The Forward Pass" (1929), "The Show of Shows" (1929) and "College Lovers" (1930). He followed this honor with songs in the animated motion picture "Dumbo" (1941) with Edward Brophy and the western "Mexicana" (1945) with Tito Guizar. Washington won an Academy Award for "Pinocchio" in 1940. Washington was nominated for a Music (Song) Academy Award for "Brazil" in 1944 as well as for a Music (Song) Academy Award for "My Foolish Heart" in 1949. Washington won a Music (Song) Academy Award for "Pinocchio" in 1940 as well as a Music (Original Score) Academy Award for "Pinocchio" in 1940. In the sixties and the seventies, Washington's music continued to appear on the silver screen, including in films like the Charlton Heston western "Major Dundee" (1965), "The War Wagon" (1967) and the Dean Martin dramatic adaptation "5 Card Stud" (1968). His work was also in the Richard Dreyfuss dramatic adventure "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (1977). Washington's music was also featured in the dramatic adaptation "Suburbia" (1997) with Giovanni Ribisi, "Out to Sea" (1997) with Jack Lemmon and "Rocketman" (1997) with Harland Williams.
