Penny Marshall

Hollywood director Penny Marshall has died from complications of diabetes.
The "Laverne & Shirley" star and director of classics like "Big" died at 75.
In addition to her role as Laverne DeFazio on "Laverne & Shirley," Marshall was the director of classic films like "Big" and "A League of Their Own."
The project reportedly received the blessing of Geena Davis and Penny Marshall.
Pioneering movie director's Dorothy Arzner recent death reminds us that still today too few movies are directed or produced by women. It wasn't until 2009 that the first Oscar for Best Director went to a woman!
It's important for me to fall in love with people while I'm interviewing them and writing about them, but there's usually a half-life. After a while, you barely remember them. Robin was different. He made me more vivid to myself, and you don't get that every day.
