Tributes were paid last night to Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall, who has died aged 81.

Bette Midler, who starred in his female-centric tearjerker Beaches, described him on Twitter as "My wonderful, hilarious, big-hearted friend".

Bronx-born Marshall - who also created a number of iconic TV sitcoms, including Happy Days, Mork And Mindy and The Odd Couple - died from the complications of pneumonia after suffering a stroke.

His other films included Runaway Bride, Overboard and, more recently, Valentine's Day, New Year's Day and Mother's Day - which while being critically mauled made good box office.

In a statement, Richard Gere who appeared in Pretty Woman and The Runaway Bride - said: "Everyone loved Garry... he was a super fine and decent man."

"He was a mentor and a cheerleader and one of the funniest men who ever lived. He had a heart of the purest gold and a. »

20 July 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sad news for movie fans. Iconic American filmmaker and legendary TV sitcom creator Garry Marshall has passed away. Perhaps best known for turning Julia Roberts into a household name with his classic 1990 romanic comedy Pretty Woman, the man succumbed to complications from pneumonia following a stroke. A Los Angeles resident most of his life, he died Tuesday night in a Burbank, California hospital.

Garry Marshall was 81 years old at the time of his passing. Along with Pretty Woman, he also helped establish actress Anne Hathaway as a true Hollywood star with both 2001's The Princess Diaries and its 2004 sequel The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. A true legend in both the world of film and television, news of his untimely demise was first announced by Access Hollywood. Cause of death was then later confirmed by TMZ.

Born in the Bronx, New York, Marshall began his career on television writing for Jack Paar's Tonight Show. »

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, »

At one time, Marshall was writing three of the top four programs of the 1978-79 television season.
