RIP: Gary Marshall


He was the creator of “Pretty Woman” “Beaches” “Happy Days" “Laverne & Shirley” “Mork & Mindy.”

Marshall died at 81 in a Burbank, California hospital, of complications from pneumonia following a stroke. An outpouring of respect and affection quickly followed.

He grew up in The Bronx, where according to Marshall you only had a few choices. You were either an athlete, a gangster, or you were funny.”
