Garry Marshall, ‘Pretty Woman’ Director, Dead At 81



Quote
Garry Marshall, a prolific writer and director of classic films including “Pretty Woman” and “Runaway Bride,” has died at the age of 81, a spokeswoman, Michelle Bega, confirmed to The Huffington Post. Marshall died from complications of pneumonia following a stroke.

A native of New York City, Marshall had been active in Hollywood since 1959. He created such television series as “Happy Days,” “Mork and Mindy” and “Laverne and Shirley” and was responsible for a number of classic romantic comedies, several of which starred Julia Roberts.

Grew up watching a lot of his stuff.  Thanks for the great memories, Garry.

Frankly, I was surprised he was only 81. Figured he had to be in his 90s by now. In any case, he really played a part in shaping the entertainment landscape, especially television. I certainly loved watching his shows growing up. RIP, Garry!

Yeah, I would agree.  When I see his picture I think he has been that old for like 15 years.

And just to tie this into videogames, are we sure that this wasn't a paid hit on another Gary this week?  May the worst Gary win.
