Fabulous Friday: Marvin Hamlisch

Here's a sweet bit from *American Masters* about Marvin Hamlisch.

And I forgot to include his EGOT details on Wednesday. Courtesy of Wikipedia:

Marvin Hamlisch (1944–2012), a composer, received his fourth distinct award in 1995. Between 1973 and 2001, Hamlisch received a total of 12 awards. Before Alan Menken joined the group in 2020, Hamlisch had the most Oscars of any Grand Slam winners (three - all won in the same year). In 1974 he became the first winner to have won a "General Field" Grammy – taking Song of the Year and Best New Artist. He was also the first Grand Slam winner to have won multiple legs of the feat for the same work – an Oscar and a Grammy for the song "The Way We Were".
