Boston, MA — The Boston Globe. — The latest installment in the superb “American Masters” series, “Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did for Love,” airing Friday at 9 p.m /8c.
In the engrossing documentary about the irrepressible composer- conductor, his relatives joke that Hamlisch’s mother, Lilly, may have invented the style; Hamlisch got into Juilliard at age 6 (pre- college division).
Wildly successful by any creative or commercial measure, Hamlisch was truly a singular sensation, writing or co-writing hit songs (“Nobody Does It Better, is the other PEGOT.) He won three Academy Awards in one night.
