Director and Actress Penny Marshall Dead at 75

https://www.vulture.com/2...179X3kTz1E

Penny Marshall, the filmmaker and actress, has died at the age of 75. Her publicist Michelle Bega confirmed the death to the New York Daily News, saying, “She passed away from complications from diabetes,” and that it happened “peacefully at her Hollywood Hills home.” Marshall, the sister of famed filmmaker Garry Marshall, rose to fame in the 1970s as Laverne DeFazio in the sitcom Laverne & Shirley, which successfully ran for eight years. During that time, Marshall directed a handful of the show’s episodes, foreshadowing her second act as a popular director. She had hits with films like Awakeningsand The Preacher’s Wife, but is perhaps best known behind the camera for A League of Their Own and the blockbuster smash that was her second feature, Big. That 1988 film earned Tom Hanks his first Oscar nomination, and it made Marshall the first woman in Hollywood history to direct a movie that grossed more than $100 million. She hadn’t directed a film since 2001’s Riding in Cars With Boys, but still acted semi-regularly into her 70s. In a statement provided to the Los Angeles Times, her family said, “Our family is heartbroken over the passing of Penny Marshall.”

Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?

I love Jumpin Jack Flash and A League of Their Own. Big is kind of gross, a grown woman in love with a child. And of course the Milwaukee years of Laverne and Shirley are great comfort TV. I loved the K-mart commercials of the 90s too 😂. RIP

I'm very sorry. My mom is almost 70 and she has trouble walking and standing because of diabetes. I'm expecting the worst within a few years.

Many thanks to Penny Marshall for lifting the spirits of so many through her comedic talents.
She has proven that greatness is not reserved for a specific gender. She was a great and intelligent woman and a positive example for future generations of females in the world of the arts and etc.
My sincere condolences to the family, friends and associates of Ms Penny Marshall.

It tastes like an ice cream float. Yum. My Daddy used to put a scoop of chocolate ice cream into a glass of orange soda. Practically twins.

What?

Laverne & Shirley that show still holds up. Both of those women where pure-dee-fools. I'd put Love Laverne & Shirley Show up there with Lucie.

May Ms. Marshall, R.I.P.
