Johnny Mercer was remembered this week in New York during a tribute to the late songwriter--the first person ever to win four Best Song Oscars ("On the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe," 1946; "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," 1951; "Moon River," 1961; "Days of Wine and Roses," 1962). Co-hosted by Cher and Henry Mancini, the two-hour show at the Waldorf-Astoria, "Mercer and the Movies," included live performances and movie clips featuring Mercer's songs.
