Earl K. Brent (6/21/1914 - 7/08/1977)


Earl K. Brent will always be remembered primarily as the lyricist for the great torch song, “Angel Eyes,” written with Matt Dennis in 1946.

But Brent wrote for many films in the ‘40s, and several of his lyrics were set to classical music. For Three Daring Daughters (1948) he set words to the Strauss waltz aria from Der Rosenkavalier for Jeanette MacDonald and entitled it “Where There’s Love.” The film also featured Brent’s lyrics to “Springtide,” sung by MacDonald and Jane Powell to the music of Edward Grieg’s “An den Fruhling.” “Waltz Serenade,” sung in Anchors Aweigh (1945), was based on Peter Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz Serenade.” And in 1946 Brent wrote lyrics for Franz Schubert’s “Serenade.”

“That Good for Nothin’ Man of Mine,” written with Ralph Freed, was featured in Northwest Rangers (1942), and “Hail to Wainwright,” written with David Snell, appeared in Love Laughs at Andy Hardy (1947). Brent contributed songs or to the scores of several other films: Two Girls and a Sailor (1944), They Were Expendable (1945), Zeigfeld Follies (1946), Call Me Mister (1951), and Snow White and the Three Stooges (1961). He also wrote the musical adaptation for the Marx Brothers’ The Big Store (1941).
