Penny Marshall has been in the business for a long time. She was one of the stars of “Laverne & Shirley”, a spin-off of “Happy Days”, both shows on which she played Laverne. She still acts on occasion, even having an uncredited appearance in High Fidelity. It is her directing, however, that I think she really excels in. She hasn’t done a heck of a lot, but we have her to thank for Big and A League of Their Own, both of which I really enjoy. I mean, a movie where Tom Hanks can just be a kid the entire time and a movie about baseball starring Geena Davis, Rosie O’Donnell, and Madonna! Heck yeah!
