Biography[edit] Early life[edit] Hamlisch was born in Manhattan, to Viennese-born Jewish parents Lilly (née Schachter) and Max Hamlisch.[1] His father was an accordionist and bandleader. Hamlisch was a child prodigy and, by age five, he began mimicking the piano music he heard on the radio. A few months before he turned seven, in 1951, he was accepted into what is now the Juilliard School Pre-College Division.[2] His first job was as a rehearsal pianist for Funny Girl with Barbra Streisand. Shortly afterward, he was hired by producer Sam Spiegel
Sam Spiegel
to play piano at Spiegel's parties. This connection led to his first film score, The Swimmer.[2] His favorite musicals growing up were My Fair Lady, Gypsy, West Side Story, and Bye Bye Birdie.[3] Hamlisch attended Queens College, earning his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1967.[2] Music for films[edit] Although Liza Minnelli's debut album included "The Travelin' Life", a song he wrote in his teens (originally titled "Travelin' Man"),[4] his first hit did not come until he was 21 years old. This song, "Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows", co-written with Howard Liebling, was recorded by Lesley Gore
Lesley Gore
and reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1965.[5] His first film score was for The Swimmer, after the film's producer Sam Spiegel
Sam Spiegel
hired Hamlisch based on a piano performance Hamlisch did at a party.[5] Later he wrote music for several early Woody Allen
Woody Allen
films such as Take the Money and Run
Take the Money and Run
and Bananas. In addition, Hamlisch co-wrote the song " California
California
Nights" (also with Liebling), which was recorded by Lesley Gore
Lesley Gore
for her 1967 hit album of the same name. The Bob Crewe-produced single peaked at No. 16 on the Hot 100 in March 1967, two months after Gore had performed the song on the Batman TV series, in which she guest-starred as an accomplice to Julie Newmar's Catwoman.

Hamlisch, at age 29, holding two of the three Oscars he won in 1974. With him are Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds
Debbie Reynolds
and Cher.

Among his better-known works during the 1970s were adaptations of Scott Joplin's ragtime music for the motion picture The Sting, including its theme song, "The Entertainer". It hit No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart and No. 3 on the Hot 100, selling nearly 2 million copies in the U.S. alone. He had great success in 1973, winning two Academy Awards
Academy Awards
for the title song and the score for the motion picture The Way We Were
The Way We Were
and an Academy Award
Academy Award
for the adaptation score for The Sting.[6] He won four Grammy Awards in 1974, two for "The Way We Were". In 1975, he wrote what, for its first 12 years, would be the original theme music for Good Morning America—it was built around four notes. He co-wrote "Nobody Does It Better" for The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) with his then-girlfriend Carole Bayer Sager, which would be nominated for an Oscar.[5] In the 1980s, he had success with the scores for Ordinary People
Ordinary People
(1980) and Sophie's Choice (1982). He also received an Academy-Award nomination in 1986 for the film version of A Chorus Line. His last projects included The Informant! (2009), starring Matt Damon
Matt Damon
and directed by Steven Soderbergh.[5] Prior to his death, he completed his first children's book Marvin Makes Music, which included the original music "The Music in My Mind" with words by Rupert Holmes, and the score for the HBO film Behind the Candelabra
Behind the Candelabra
(2013), also directed by Soderbergh and starring Damon and Michael Douglas
Michael Douglas
as Liberace. Stage[edit] Hamlisch's first major stage work was in 1972 playing piano for Groucho Marx
Groucho Marx
at Carnegie Hall
Carnegie Hall
for An Evening with Groucho. Hamlisch acted as both straight man and accompanist while Marx (at age 81) reminisced about his career in show business.[7] The performances were released as a two-record set, and remained very popular.[8] He then composed the scores for the 1975 Broadway musical A Chorus Line, for which he won both a Tony Award
Tony Award
and a Pulitzer Prize; and for the 1978 musical They're Playing Our Song, loosely based on his relationship with Carole Bayer Sager.[9] At the beginning of the 1980s, his romantic relationship with Bayer Sager ended, but their songwriting relationship continued. The 1983 musical Jean Seberg, based on the life of the real-life actress, failed in its London production at the UK's National Theatre and never played in the U.S.[10] In 1986, Smile was a mixed success and had a short run on Broadway.[5] The musical version of Neil Simon's The Goodbye Girl (1993) closed after only 188 performances, although he received a Drama Desk nomination, for Outstanding Music.[11] Shortly before his death, Hamlisch finished scoring a musical theatre version of The Nutty Professor, based on the 1963 film.[12] The show played in July and August 2012, at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) in Nashville, aiming for a Broadway run.[12][13][14] The book is by Rupert Holmes, and the production was directed by Jerry Lewis.[15][16] Conductor[edit]

Aretha Franklin
called him "classic and one of a kind", and one of the "all-time great" arrangers and producers.[39] The head of the Pasadena Symphony and Pops commented that Hamlisch had "left a very specific ... original mark on American music and added to the great American songbook with works he himself composed."[40] At 8:00 p.m. EDT on August 8, the marquee lights of the 40 Broadway theaters were dimmed for one minute in tribute to Hamlisch,[41][42] an honor traditionally accorded posthumously to those considered to have made significant contributions to the theater arts.[43][44][45] Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin, and Liza Minnelli
