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 »

The BBC announces six-part adaptation of Les Miserables

21 July 2016 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The BBC and Weinstein TV announced that BAFTA-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies (War and Peace) has signed on to adapt Victor Hugo’s classic novel Les Miserables as a six-part drama.

“Most of us are familiar with the musical version which only offers a fragmentary outline of its story,” states Davis. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity of doing real justice to Victor Hugo at last by adapting his masterpiece in a six hour version for the BBC, with the same team who made War and Peace.”

Andrew Davies’ extraordinary skill for adaptation will bring the world famous Les Misérables into powerful focus for a modern audience with a multi-layered re-telling of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece”, adds Charlotte Moore, director of content at the BBC. “BBC One viewers can expect the same quality and scale from the team behind War and Peace in this epic tale of redemption and the healing power of love. »

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 (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, »
