   I agree that Marvin Hamlisch's use of Scott Joplin's music in "the Sting" 
was masterful.  He slowed down "the Entertainer" and scored it as a band of 
that era would have done it.  The result was a poignant peice of music that 
enhanced the movie greatly.  He did the same with "Solace."   A perfect match 
of music and show.
