Today, my MIL asked her daughter to get her a book about Marvin Hamlisch. Wikipedia says this about him:
(June 2, 1944 – August 6, 2012) was an American composer and conductor. He is one of only twelve people to win anEmmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony (also known as an EGOT). He is one of ten people to win three or more Oscars in one night and the only non-director/screenwriter to do so. He is one of only two people to have won those four prizes and a Pulitzer Prize (Richard Rodgers is the other). Hamlisch also won two Golden Globes.
For me, my mind ran to The Sting with Robert Redford and Paul Newman and the wonderful rag time music in that film.
Marvin adapted Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer for the movie. He won the 1974 Oscar for Best Original Song Score or Adaptation Score for The Sting. The Sting won 7 awards that year including Best picture.
A great movie and a classic.
