I am thoroughly enjoying the classic footage, interviews with the actors and his family and seeing those those stars who have passed on, including him!  One in a milliion he was!Heart

Re: Garry Marshall Tribute Special

I'm a very stoic person and rarely cry except for when it has something to do with animals (which is why I'll never watch Ol Yeller).  But, when they started showing the dying scene from Beaches it hit me hard just like the first time I watched it.

Re: Garry Marshall Tribute Special

this tribute to him has been excellent!

 

how did they manage to get together all of the footage of him during the different periods of time of his life? it was amazing to hear him and see him speak about his own career about his family and about his collegues....he has been gone now for 4 years.

 

what a career!

Re: Garry Marshall Tribute Special

@Sunshine45 I'm assuming that he narrated his autobiography for an audio book and that's why his own voice told much of the story. Noticeably absent was mention of the very popular movie "A League of Their Own". Does anyone remember how QVC promoted that movie with lots of merchandising? I think it was because he generally had a happy set, but with Rosie and his sister Penny, it wasn't a pleasant experience.

Re: Garry Marshall Tribute Special

Excellent!!!

Another clip I would have liked to have included was in 2006 Garrys son, Scott, directed a little film called Keeping Up With the Steins. and Garry had a bit part as an aging hippy type grandfather with Doris Roberts as his ex wife. He did a great job, even did a nude scene from the back!!

This was such a lovely, nostalgic tribute to Gary and all the wonderful things he created to bring laughter and romance into our entertainment.

Re: Garry Marshall Tribute Special

Garry must have been beloved by all that worked with him and for him. To hear everyone speak so lovingly of him, and the celebrities dropped everything when Garry lay dying to say goodbye to him.

Re: Garry Marshall Tribute Special

It was very good. He was such a lovely person, friend, boss, husband, and father. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
