His name isn't familiar to anyone under 50, but whenever I hear Marvin Hamlisch, I hear songs from the movie "The Sting", starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
Hamlish was a prolific composer and won virtually every major award that exists: three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, a Tony and three Golden Globe awards.
He was 68 years old. If you're curious about other movies Mr. Hamlisch contributed to, here are a few in no particular order:
A Chorus Line
The Goodbye Girl
The Sweet Smell of Success
The Way We Were
For more credits, here is his "official" website.
Thanks for the memories, Mr. Hamlisch.
