We all have lost some really gifted creator over the years. Recently, Happy Day’s castmates paid homage to the late creator of the sitcom. It was more like a family affair when all the cast members came together to pay respect to the legendary creator Garry Marshall.
Marshall was the executive producer and showrunner of the 1950s popular comedy sitcom. He was honoured by cast members including Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Don Most, Anson Williams and Marlon Ross. The cast members attended Marshall’s 130-seat theatre in Burbank, Calif. Marshall founded the Burbank landmark in 1997 when it was called the Falcon. Later the theatre was named Garry Marshall Theatre in 2017.
THe castmates were all overwhelmed with nostalgia and they took a trip down the memory lane. They talked about their memories while filming the sitcom. They also recalled the good memories spent on the Paramount lot with Marshall. He died in July 2016. He is credited with a lot of work in the small and big screens.
Moreover, the sixty-five-year-old Howard told in an interview that how one meeting with Marshall led to an audition for ’Love, American Style’ spinoff. The same meeting also led to Howard’s break as a director. After from Howard, actor Henry Winkler also thanked Marshall for his professional career as he was also a partner of the sitcom Happy days.HE wrote on Twitter and thanked the late creator for his generosity, loyalty and friendship.
Apart from creating some great sitcoms of all times, he is credited with big films like Pretty woman, Runaway Brida and even Princess Diaries! He seems to have discovered and nurtured great talents of Hollywood like Julia Roberts, Robin Williams and many more. He was gifted in a way that he could understand the popular culture and make a relatable film out of it.
