CHICAGO – A significant reunion took play at the Hollywood Celebrities & Memorabilia Show last weekend as three of the main characters from two great sitcoms from the 1970s reunited for a class picture. Henry Winkler of “Happy Days,” plus Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams of “Laverne & Shirley” were there.

“Laverne & Shirley” was actually a spin-off of “Happy Days,” both created and produced by Garry Marshall, Penny’s brother. Henry Winkler as Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli started as a background character on “Happy Days,” and then broke out to be a phenomenon during the era of the show. He contnues to do character roles for shows such as “Arrested Development” and “Children’s Hospital.” Penny Marshall went on to direct classic and popular films, including “Big,” “Awakenings,” and “A League of Their Own.” Cindy Williams continues to do stage and screen roles.

Photographer Joe Arce captured this Exclusive Portrait, a rare group photo of the former cast mates, on October 2nd at the Hollywood Celebrities and Memorabilia Show.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Bad Words

    Looming over “Bad Words” is the potential it could have had, as is, were it released ten years ago. With its focus of R-rated behavior poking at the projected innocence of children, along with the couple of chromosomes that keep Bateman’s Trilby from being a Vince Vaughn character, this movie is certainly a product of the comedies that have sculpted out the manchild story in the past decade.

  • Winter's Tale

    The theatrical poster for “Winter’s Tale,” after promising that “It’s not a true story, it’s a love story,” made a large demand from its viewers at the bottom: “This Valentine’s Day, Believe In Miracles.” While there is indeed a difference between filmmaking and marketing, it is hard to not imagine writer/director Akiva Goldsman whispering “believe in miracles” into the ear of every executive who helped “Winter’s Tale” come to life, immediately after throwing glitter on them.
