American Masters

Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did for Love

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
By age 31, Marvin Hamlisch had won four Grammys, an Emmy, three Oscars, a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize, making him one of only 2 PEGOT's ever. Hit after hit -"The Way We Were," "Nobody Does It Better" and scores for The Sting, Sophie's Choice and the Broadway juggernaut A Chorus Line, made him the go-to composer for film and Broadway producers and the go-to performer for every president since Reagan. His streak was unprecedented. A child prodigy accepted at Juilliard at age six, Hamlisch's classical training laid the groundwork for his popular compositions. A rich archival legacy, interviews with his A-list collaborators, and cooperation from his family combine to tell this rich and engrossing story.
