    Maybe we should change the Death Curse to the days that Howard works, since that is rarer occurence.

    Composer and conductor Marvin Hamlisch, best known for the torch song "The Way We Were," died Monday. He was 68 years old.
    Hamlisch collapsed after a brief illness, his family announced.
    In a career that spanned over four decades, Hamlisch won virtually every major award: three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, a Tony, and three Golden Globes.
    Hamlisch composed more than forty motion picture scores, including his Oscar-winning score and song for “The Way We Were,” and his adaptation of Scott Joplin’s ragtime music for “The Sting,” for which he received a third Oscar.
    Hamlisch's musical scores, though intricately conceived, never drew attention to themselves. They served to compliment the on-screen action, not overwhelm it -- enhancing each gesture, each glance, each moment of drama. That subtle approach allowed him to be something of a musical chameleon, easily gliding from searing dramas to off-beat comedies and making him a close collaborator to a diverse group of directors such as Woody Allen, Steven Soderbergh and Alan J. Pakula.

    Brilliant composition even if Marvin did steal it.

    howard once made fun of this guy because he was on merv griffen or some shit, and the host was congratulating him on being able to write songs about anything. hamlisch sang a song about something stupid that someone in the audience threw out there. howard did the same thing in the studio. FYI.

    this was back when funny and originality were still part of the show.

    He did win the title of "most handsome" from the Jewish school he attended.
