Richard Gere was not clamoring to play corporate raider Edward Lewis when "Pretty Woman" first looked his way.
The entertainment industry lost one of its most beloved luminaries on Monday when Garry Marshall passed away at the age of 81. Marshall got his start in TV, first as a writer for The Tonight Show with Jack Paar and The Dick Van Dyke Show and then, more famously, as the mastermind behind a string of ‘70s and ‘80s smashes including The Odd Couple, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and Mork and Mindy. Marshall segued into cinematic features, and his 34-year directing career was just as impressive, featuring numerous critical and box-office hits that — along with his regular acting performances — solidified his reputation as one of mainstream movies’ biggest crowd-pleasers. Here’s a rundown of his most memorable credits.
Not only has Julia Roberts reteamed with Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall (again!), but the Oscar winner is sharing the spotlight with big-name co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson in this first trailer (above) for Mother’s Day, premiering exclusively on Yahoo Movies. In the tradition of Marshall’s ensemble rom-coms Valentine’s Day (in which Roberts also starred) and New Year’s Eve, Mother’s Day promises to weave together multiple storylines centered around the titular holiday.
