Award-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch dies at 68

You may have never heard of Marvin Hamlisch. But you've no doubt heard his music. The genius behind "A Chorus Line," "The Way We Were" and "The Spy Who Loved Me" died in Los Angeles yesterday at the age of 68. The film and theater composer won dozens of awards throughout his career, including three Academy Awards, four Grammies and even a Pulitzer. His third Oscar award was for his adaptation of Scott Joplin's music for the 1973 film, "The Sting."
