American Masters: Marvin Hamlisch: The Way He Was
Composer, conductor, genius, mensch, Marvin Hamlisch was as close to a modern day DaVinci as it gets. Hit after hit...."The Way We Were", "Nobody Does It Better", "The Sting", "A Chorus Line", Marvin was irrepressible and prolific. Winner of four Grammys, an Emmy, three Oscars, and a Tony, all by the time he was 31-years-old, Marvin's streak was staggering, vast, unprecedented, and glorious. Interviews with a cavalcade of Marvin's colleagues, schoolmates, and renown collaborators help to tell a deeply personal, candid, insider study of one of the great artists of our time.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
