Director/ writer/ actor Gary Marshall dies at age 81

22 July 2016 9:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Tuesday July 19, Hollywood lost a giant in the world of comedy with the passing of beloved director/writer/producer/actor Gary Marshall at the age of 81. While most of the news outlets focused in on his considerable work in television (he practically owned Tuesday nights in the 1970’s with his “Happy Days” empire), this site would like to salute Mr. Marshall’s work on both sides of the camera.

After impressive writing credits on many of the classic sitcoms of the 1960’s, it was inevitable that the movie studios would tap him to contribute to several screenplays. The first was produced in 1968, a marriage comedy starring James Garner and Debbie Reynolds, How Sweet It Is. A youth-oriented romantic comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset, The Grasshopper, was released in 1970. TV triumphs quickly followed, so Marshall’s movie career was put on hold for more than a dozen years. 1982 was the year »

Pretty Woman Director Garry Marshall Dead At 81

20 July 2016 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Garry Marshall, the celebrated filmmaker and producer behind such films as Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries, has died aged 81, sources have confirmed.

Marshall passed away Tuesday in Burbank, California following complications from a stroke and later pneumonia.

Known for his knack of firing young up-and-comers to stardom, Marshall was instrumental in putting both Richard Gere and Julia Roberts on the map via Pretty Woman – the latter nabbed an Oscar nomination for Best Actress – while The Princess Diaries ensured Anne Hathaway broke onto the scene as an exciting new talent. Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve and the recent Mother’s Day are examples of the director’s final movies.

His work extended beyond the silver screen, too, penning scripts and overseeing production on both Mork and Mindy and Happy Days. Of course, the latter birthed a fan favorite in Henry Winkler’s the Fonz, and for a brief time during its peak, »

Garry Marshall obituary: creator of Happy Days

Director, producer, writer and creator of hit TV shows such as Happy Days and popular films including Pretty Woman, Beaches and The Princess Diaries

The director Garry Marshall, who has died aged 81, was widely loved within the film industry for his untamed Bronx accent and his cheerful, larger-than-life personality. “He’s eccentric,” said his sister, the actor and director Penny Marshall. “When he drove, he’d only make right-hand turns, because if you make a left, a car could come in and whack you.” Audiences cherished his infectious approach to screen comedy and his common touch. “Garry always used to give actors his favourite direction: ‘Talk like a person,’” said the theatre director Gordon Greenberg. “What he meant was: show people themselves and they will fall in love with you.”

Since the 1980s, Marshall had worked predominantly in cinema, where his successes included Beaches (1988), a terminal-illness tearjerker starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey, »

20 July 2016 8:57 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Garry Marshall, the man who helped create iconic sitcoms such as "Happy Days", "Laverne & Shirley" and "Mork & Mindy", has died at age 81. Greatly beloved in the entertainment industry, Marshall helped kick many actors' careers into overdrive including Julia Roberts, Ron Howard, Henry Winkler and Robin Williams.  He also adapted Neil Simon's stage and screen hit "The Odd Couple" into a long-running TV series starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman.

Five life lessons we learned from Garry MarshallFive life lessons we learned from Garry MarshallAdriana Floridia7/20/2016 10:07:00 Am

Last night, Hollywood lost one of its most prolific filmmakers, Garry Marshall, who passed away at the age of eighty-one.

Marshall was known for his sentimental films that focused on love and friendship in a magical and optimistic way that was unique to his sensibilities. While he had a huge impact on television, as the creator of “Happy Days” and all of its spin-offs, he also offered the film world some of our best romantic comedies and stories of platonic love, from Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries, to Beaches and Raising Helen.

Marshall’s joy for life was evident through his storytelling, which had quite the impact on us growing up, and up until this day. At the age of eighty, Marshall was still working hard behind the camera, as »

Garry Marshall (1934-2016)

20 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

One of Hollywood's key figures passed away yesterday at the age of 81. His work in the past five years has consisted of a string of critically lambasted all star romcoms (Valentines Day, New Year's Eve, Mothers Day) and the day before he died one of the many actor he made famous (Scott Baio of Happy DaysJoanie Loves Chachi fame) embarrassed himself on national television at the Rnc. To put it bluntly, the last few years have not been kind but this is not the legacy that the beloved Garry Marshall deserves. We need to look a little further back. While he was never exactly a critic's darling - let's not rewrite history -- his work often resonated wildly with the public on screens both small and large. And that, my friends, is no small thing with or without a shelf of showbiz trophies.

He was a mammoth figure in comedy television, »
