Maurice K. Jerome (nee Morris Kraus), who lived here in 1940, was a songwriter, composer and publisher. While in high school, he was a vaudeville pianist and accompanist in film theatres, and then became a staff pianist for Waterson, Berlin and Snyder. He came to Hollywood in 1929, and wrote theme songs for early film musicals, staying under contract to Warner Brothers for eighteen years. His popular-song compositions include “San Antonio”, “My Little Buckaroo”, “The Old Apple Tree”, “You, You Darlin”, “Sweet Dreams, Sweetheart”, “The Wish That I Wish Tonight”, and “It’s Victory Day” (awarded a Treasury Department Silver Medal). He was once married to Norma Talmadge. (Source: Internet Movie Database)
