9. Leonard Bernstein - On the Waterfront
On the Waterfront not only featured a classic Oscar-winning turn from Marlon Brando, but it also featured the first and only Leonard Bernstein score that wasn’t adapted from a stage production with songs. Bernstein was nominated for an Academy Award for the score, however he was beaten by Dimitri Tiomkin’s score for The High and the Mighty.
