RIP - Garry Marshall

[FONT=&quot]Garry Marshall knew how to tug at moviegoers' heartstrings, whether with unlikely love in "Pretty Woman" or sentimental loss in "Beaches." But it was goofy, crowd-pleasing comedy that endeared the writer and director to generations of TV viewers in hit sitcoms including "Happy Days, "Laverne & Shirley" and "Mork & Mindy." Marshall, who died Tuesday at 81, said in a 1980's interview that humor was his necessary path in life.

Talented and capable director.

Sad day for the movie industry.

All the greats are leaving the theater.

They will live on forever in the art they created.
When I saw the news, the first thing I thought of was how he brought "The Odd Couple" to TV.
The film has an oddly melancholy tone. The sitcom remains a classic.
