With the television hits The Odd Couple, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, and Mork & Mindy , and movies like The Flamingo Kid, Beaches, Pretty Woman, and The Princess Diaries under his belt, Garry Marshall has been among the most successful writers, directors, and producers in America for more than five decades. His work on the small and big screen has delighted audiences for the last three decades and has withstood the test of time.  

In My Happy Days in Hollywood , Marshall takes us on a journey from his stickball-playing days in the Bronx to his time at the helm of some of the most popular television series and movies of all time, sharing the joys and challenges of working with the Fonz and the young Julia Roberts, the "street performer" Robin Williams, and the young Anne Hathaway, among many others. This honest, vibrant, and often hilarious memoir reveals a man whose career has been defined by his drive to make people laugh and whose personal philosophy--despite his tremendous achievements--has always been that life is more important than show business.

Light autobiography of Marshall's rise from comedy writer to executive producer. Some interesting stories surrounding some of his biggestTV and movie hits, which makes for some fun reading, but overall nothing memorable. Complimentary to all he has worked with which is refreshing.
