10th Annual Houston Jewish Film Festival: Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did for Love


This biography of composer Marvin Hamlisch (1944-2012) is a must for lovers of musicals. A prodigy accepted to Juilliard at age 6, Hamlisch defied classical expectations, redirecting his talents to musical theater and pop music. By age 31, he achieved unprecedented success with smash hits including "The Way We Were," "Nobody Does It Better" and scores for The Sting, Sophie's Choice and A Chorus Line. He went on to earn four Grammys, four Emmys, three Oscars, three Golden Globes, a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize.

Tony-winner Dori Berinstein has made a documentary that celebrates Hamlisch's legacy, articulated by friends still reeling from his untimely death. Among those interviewed are his widow Terre Blair Hamlisch, Barbra Streisand, Carly Simon, Quincy Jones, Christopher Walken and many others.
