20 July 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

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, »
