The TV and film industry has lost a legend responsible for some of the most iconic TV shows and movies of our time.

Garry Marshall, a writer, director, producer and actor, died Tuesday due to complications from pneumonia following a stroke. He was 81.

Marshall created several hit TV shows, including “The Odd Couple,” “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley” — which starred his sister Penny Marshall — and “Mork & Mindy.”

He later tried his hand at film and found even more success. He directed hits like “Beaches,” “Pretty Woman,” “Runaway Bride” and both of the “Princess Diaries” films, which put actress Anne Hathaway on the map.

It’s no wonder his more recent films — “Valentine’s Day,” “New Year’s Day” and “Mother’s Day” — had huge casts featuring some of Hollywood’s best, some of whom owe their breakout success to Marshall.
