Hollywood director, writer, producer, and actor Garry Marshall has died at age 81. Marshall was best known for creating popular sitcoms like Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley as well as directing films such as Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries

A true master of comedy, Marshall also created the television adaptation of The Odd Couple — which has since spurred a CBS reboot — and Mork & Mindy, both of which also became wildly popular hits that remain culturally significant.
