The way I was by Marvin Hamlisch( Book )

7 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most gifted popular composers of our time, Marvin Hamlisch's book is funny, witty, brutally frank, and moving. He writes about the career that brought him three Academy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, and international fame by the age of thirty-one. It also left him alone, with nowhere to go but down. The son of Viennese immigrants, he was sent to New York City's Juilliard School of Music when he was only six, but the place made him a nervous wreck, and he unfailingly threw up before every final exam. He helped a young Liza Minnelli make her first record as a Christmas present for her mother, Judy Garland. He next went to Broadway where he was a rehearsal pianist for Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl. Moving to Hollywood, he composed the score and title song for The Way We Were, adapted the music for The Sting, and accepted three Oscars in one evening. He came back east after that to work with Michael Bennett on A Chorus Line. He also had failures such as Jean and Smile. Tough years followed with no writing offers of much consequence. Being idle and alone was agony. Hamlisch started experiencing excruciating headaches and developed depression. He realized that his life " ... would have to stop being about showing them. It would have to start to be about showing me."

Pictorial history of Gone with the wind by Gerald Gardner( Book )

13 editions published between 1980 and 1996 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Film Institute recently voted Gone With the Wind the most popular film ever made. This vote merely ratified the emotions of movie fans around the world. Gone With the Wind has become a legend, and the search for its star something of a Cinderella story. Pictorial History of Gone With the Wind is a collection of facts and artifacts, memories and memorabiloia, that spring from this legend. What is most exciting about Pictorial History of Gone With the Wind is the unique and imaginative way in which it presents the facts on the making of this extraordinary film. Its perspectives are unique and its graphics supplement the text in intriguing ways. One of the most entertaining films of all time is discussed and presented in ways that explore every facet of Gone With the Wind: The book includes an extraordinary table of organization, the complex army of experts and egos that combined their talents to create the film. There is a picture history from the 684 scenes that comprised the movie and the turmoil and torment that dodged their shooting. There is the nostalgic cornucopia as the fan magazines exploded in an orgy of gossip and glorification. There is the curse of Gone With the Wind, the tragedies that hounded its principals. There is an unusual gallery that shows how Scarlett and Rhett would have looked if their parts had been played by the other actors considered for the roles. Pictorial History is an album of nostalgic riches that includes fan magazine covers, movie ads, posters, press books, theatre cards and other memorabilia of this famous movie, that will delight any movie buff. -- from dust jacket

Born in New York City in 1922, Elmer Bernstein was one of America's most celebrated composers best known for the award-winning musical scores he developed for film, theatre, and television over a fifty-year career. His best-known work includes the scores he wrote for The Great Escape , The Magnificent Seven , To Kill a Mockingbird , Ghostbusters , and The Ten Commandments , among many others. He was nominated for fourteen Oscars, winning one for the score to Thoroughly Modern Millie in 1967. He was also nominated for two Grammy Awards and won two Golden Globe awards. This debut memoir by Pearl Bernstein Gardner, his wife of twenty years, Galatea to his Pygmalion, provides a sweeping account of the great composer's life from their time together as newlyweds living in a fifth-floor New York City walk-up to the glamour of the red carpet and the intrigues of Hollywood during the turbulent McCarthy period. The Bernsteins were also close friends with many prominent musicians, actors, directors, and writers of the day, including Frank Sinatra, Clifford Odets, Danny Kaye, Otto Preminger, and Cecil B.
