Storyline

Composer, conductor, genius, mensch, Marvin Hamlisch was as close to a modern day Da Vinci as it gets. Hit after hit...'The Way We Were', 'Nobody Does It Better', 'The Sting', 'Chorus Line', Marvin was irrepressible and prolific. His streak was staggering. So what made a genius like that tick? What was his creative process? What struggles, inner turmoil, breakthroughs did Marvin endure to realize his triumphs? And when breathtaking success was followed by flops, how did Marvin cope? With exclusive access to Marvin's rich personal archive and interviews with Marvin's A+-name collaborators, classmates and colleagues, we are able to craft a deeply personal, candid, insider portrait of one of the great artists of our time. This film vividly captures 'the way he was'.... Written by Anonymous

The man behind the hit songs
8 May 2017 | by kz917-1See all my reviews

Who is the man behind all those hits? This PBS documentary tells the tale via interviews from a wide swath of actors, coworkers and even the wife of Marvin Hamlisch. You also get the history of Marvin, from his parents to his time at Julliard. I for one greatly enjoyed all the trivial tidbits of information shared. At the end you'll know Marvin a whole lot better.
