We Will Remember The Way We Were…

hamlisch-620

Award winning composer Marvin Hamlisch has passed away. His list of hit movie and Broadway tunes are considered old standards now in American pop culture. Hamlisch won three Academy Awards, four Emmys, a Tony and three Golden Globes, but also wrote some of the most recognizable songs in modern entertainment history. When I heard on the news this afternoon that he had passed away, this came to mind...

I'm sure Gilda was the first to greet Marvin at the Pearly Gates when he arrived.

    She is priceless and so was this video. He was a marvelous entertainer besides writing songs.
    Can't resist asking - anyone else have the same reaction I did when she proclaimed that Streisand and Redford in the movie are accused of being communists which they aren't?

    LOL! Yeah, Honey.

    Ironinc, eh?

    I miss her too. Some of the funniest and most creative SNLers left us all too soon.

    Oh, and if you're familiar with this particular character Gilda made famous, she was nerdy frumpy teen Lisa and her would be boyfriend "Tod" that was played by Bill Murray who wore the waist of his trousers halfway up his chest.

    Lisa always had an ongoing crush for the composer, and I beleive there was one episode of SNL that he actually showed up in the "Lisa/Tod" skit, making her all vaclempt.

    Not to get completely off topic, but the best "Lisa/Tod" skit had to be the one where Dan Aykroyd played a refrigerator repairman with his butt-crack sticking out above his trousers every time he bent over or squatted down to work on the appliance. Tod and Lisa were sitting and watching from the kitchen table. Dan and Gilda could barely get through their lines for laughing and trying NOT to laugh. Classic.
