Mr. Hamlisch died on Monday (August 6) in Los Angeles. Other details are not being released.
Marvin picked up his three Oscars in 1974 for his work on both The Way We Were and The Sting. His work on the classic Broadway show A Chorus Line earned him a Pulitzer Prize. He also appeared as himself in the romantic comedy How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
