Carl Sigman, 91
composer-lyricist whose eminently hummable tunes were recorded by the
likes of Guy Lombardo (Enjoy Yourself) and Billie Holiday (Crazy, He
Calls Me); in Manhasset, N.Y. Most active in the 40s and 50s,
he wrote everything from Frank Sinatra ballads (What Now My Love) to
TV theme songs ("Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding though the glen").
His last major hit was the theme for Love Story (Where Do I Begin?),
a sentimental coda to a remarkable career.
