Famed Hollywood and Broadway composer Marvin Hamlisch has died in Los Angeles, on Monday. He was 68.
Family spokesman Jason Lee said Hamlisch passed away after a brief illness, without revealing any further details.
The music-maker, whose career spanned over four decades, has won practically every major award: three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, a Tony, and three Golden Globes.
Hamlish takes on responsibility for scoring several wonderful films including The Way We Were, Sophie’s Choice, Ordinary People and Take the Money and Run. While on Broadway, he received the Pulitzer Prize for long-running favorite The Chorus Line and wrote The Goodbye Girl and Sweet Smell of Success.
Our deepest thoughts go out to all of Marvin’s family and close friends.
