Profile:
Robert "Bob" Craig Wright (September 25, 1914, Daytona Beach, Florida, USA – July 27, 2005, Miami, Florida, USA) was an American composer and lyricist.

Wright collaborated with George Forrest for more than 70 years - frequently adapting classical composers’ music, to create some 2,000 songs featured in 16 stage musicals, 18 revues, and 58 movies, as well as a number of cabaret acts. Among their best-known musicals were "Song of Norway" (1944), the Tony Award-winning "Kismet" (1953), and "Grand Hotel" (1989).

Wright and Forrest's most known songs include "The Donkey Serenade" (from "The Firefly", with composer Herbert Stothart, based on a theme by Rudolf Friml), "Always and Always" (from "Mannequin") and "It's a Blue World" (from "Music in My Heart").
