For five decades, Oscar-winning sound engineer Jack Solomon astounded the auditory senses of movie lovers with his work on such memorable features as Kiss Me Deadly (1955), King Kong (1976), and Patriot Games (1992). Born in 1913, six-time Oscar nominee Solomon was one of the first two people to win an Academy Award for sound, snagging a statuette (along with Murray Spivack) for his contributions to 1969's Hello, Dolly! Receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Cinema Audio Society in 1992, Solomon would subsequently mix the audio for such films as The Last Starfighter (1984) and No Way Out (1987). On November 8, 2002, Jack Solomon died following heart surgery in Los Angeles, CA.
