  Alan Jay Lerner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lerner was born in New York City on August 31, 1918, the son of Joseph Jay Lerner, the wealthy owner of a chain of dress stores (the Lerner Stores).
Lerner and Loewe's run of success continued with their next project, a film adaptation of stories from Colette, the Academy Award winning film musical Gigi.
Lerner was a handsome, sophisticated gentleman with an addictive personality; for over 20 years he battled an amphetamine addiction, and Lerner would marry eight times (one ex-wife quipped, "Marriage is Alan's way of saying goodbye").

Frederick Loewe, an unheralded Vienna-born composer, and Alan Jay Lerner, the lyricist-playwright son of the proprietors of an American chain of women's clothing shops, with sketches and lyrics for two Harvard Hasty Pudding shows among his major credits, met by chance at New York's Lambs Club in 1942.
Lerner and Loewe's next collaboration was on the film adaptation of the Colette novel Gigi, another success filled with songs destined to become standard.
Not until he teamed up with lyricist Alan Jay Lerner in 1942, however, did he find his true talent; their first big success was Brigadoon (1947) and this was followed by such classic stage and film musical scores as My Fair Lady (1956), Gigi (1958), and Camelot (1960).

Lerner won one of the film's nine Oscars for his screenplay, and another, with Loewe, for the title song.
In the early 60s, partly because of the composer's ill health, Lerner and Loewe ended their partnership, coming together again briefly in 1973 to write some new songs for a stage presentation of Gigi, and, a year later, for the score to the film The Little Prince.
Lerner won a Grammy award for the title song, and maintained that it was his most frequently recorded number.

 Lerner & Loewe - Biography - AOL Music
Alan Jay Lerner (1918-1986) and Frederick Loewe (1901-1988) wrote some of the most stylish, sophisticated theater music of the 20th century.
Loewe, born in Berlin, came to the U.S. in 1924 and gradually worked his way into theater music.
The Lerner-Loewe formula was to combine Loewe's lush, melodic music, redolent of Viennese waltz, with Lerner's witty, literate lyrics.

 Luck's Music Library - Featured Composer - Frederick Loewe
Loewe embarked on a number of unsuccessful projects, while playing piano in silent movie houses and other miscellaneous jobs to make ends meet.
Despite his late start on Broadway, Loewe's taste and musical personality were rooted in the Viennese operetta of his youth.
It is easy to mistake this hard-won simplicity of expression to a kind of emotional distancing, but the total integration of story and song in the work of Lerner and Loewe is what makes their work so widely appealing to so many.

The works of Lerner and Loewe were a mainstay of Broadway for decades in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, but it was during the late 50s and early 60s that their true glory days took hold.
The presidential term of John F. Kennedy gained the nickname 'Camelot' in part because of the influence of the Lerner and Loewe production going on at the start.
The songs contained in these suites are instantly recognisable by many, as the Lerner and Loewe songs have become so well known that many know the songs better than the musicals or the composers from which they come.
