Marvin Hamlisch
Film Excerpt: Leaving Hollywood for Broadway

Marvin Hamlisch earned recognition early in his Hollywood career, and in a big way: He won three Oscars in one evening for his music for the films “The Sting” and “The Way We Were.” The native New Yorker was pleased with the work he was doing, but Broadway, his first love, beckoned. His next project was working with director Michael Bennett on what became the Broadway sensation and Pulitzer Prize winner, “A Chorus Line.”
