In Memory of Marvin Hamlisch (1944-2012) (Updated)

Marvin Hamlisch (1944-2012) 

Greetings, blog viewers,
I have some sad news,
Oscar winning composer
Marvin Hamlisch, the man
who is responsible for doing
music score of movies such
as 'The Sting' and 'The
Spy Who Loved Me'
has passed away in Los
Angeles at age 68 on August
6th, 2012.

He wrote dozens of scores for film, Broadway and television. He scooped up many awards throughout his career including three Oscars, four Golden Globes and others. Although incredibly
versatile for his style, he composed more than 40 scores for pictures as 'Sophie's Choice', Woody
Allen's 'Bananas', 'The Way We Were' in which he was best known for his re-imaginings of Scott Joplin such as "The Entertainer", which appeared in 'The Sting' and 'The Spy Who Loved Me'.
