Composer, conductor, genius, mensch, Marvin Hamlisch was as close to a modern day Da Vinci as it gets. Hit after hit...'The Way We Were', 'Nobody Does It Better', 'The Sting', 'Chorus Line', Marvin was irrepressible and prolific. His streak was staggering. So what made a genius like that tick? What was his creative process? What struggles, inner turmoil, breakthroughs did Marvin endure to realize his triumphs? And when breathtaking success was followed by flops, how did Marvin cope? With exclusive access to Marvin's rich personal archive and interviews with Marvin's A+-name collaborators, classmates and colleagues, we are able to craft a deeply personal, candid, insider portrait of one of the great artists of our time. This film vividly captures 'the way he was'....Written by
This uninspired, lackluster effort features alleged pedophile Woody Allen waxing poetic over Marvin Hamlisch. Allen is the Kiss of Death to this project. He was included because the filmmakers thought he'd bring bank; however, Allen is a pariah and his presence has the opposite effect.
Allen is a vile, toxic creature and ALL his projects should be boycotted. I hope the executives at PBS never work with this group of "alleged sex crimes against children are okay by us" money-grubbing hacks again.
