Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Marvin Hamlisch

Better than the hat trick. Composer and conductor Marvin Hamlisch won the Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, and Tony awards. He was one of only 16 people to do so. And he, along with Richard Rodgers, won all four of those awards plus a Pulitzer Prize. His first job was a rehearsal pianist for “Funny Girl” with Barbra Streisand. During this interview I learned that he wrote a hit song for a top 40 female artist. Marvin was probably best known for writing “The Entertainer” for the movie “The Sting.” He also wrote “The Way We Were,” and “Nobody Does it Better” for the film “The Spy Who Loved Me.” And there were many others including “Chorus Line” and “They’re Playing Our Song” which was based on his relationship with Carole Bayer Sager.
