Remembering a life that was both hilarious and heartbreaking, producer/writer/actor PENNY MARSHALL tells all (or, at least, most) in her new memoir, MY MOTHER WAS NUTS. From growing up in her mother’s dance studio to becoming the first woman to direct a movie that grossed over $100 million, MARSHALL’s story takes readers on a trip from the poor side of the Bronx to the top of the Hollywood food-chain.
As confirmed in the book, it was her brother, Garry, who first opened the door to her success by getting her roles in such TV classics as THE ODD COUPLE, HAPPY DAYS and, of course, the uber-successful LAVERNE & SHIRLEY. During our recent interview, PENNY talked about her relationship with her brother. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA LINK FOR AUDIO)
