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.

  • Wonder Woman

    CHICAGO – There are few films in 2017 that are as historically important as they are cinematically well-crafted. Of those, there is only one I saw three times in theaters. That honor comes in the form of the revolutionary “Wonder Woman,” which not only shows huge promise for the future of DC Comics films but for comic book-based films as a whole.

  • Monica Raymund on set for 'Tanya'

    CHICAGOTV fans know Monica Raymund as paramedic Gabby Dawson on the long-running “Chicago Fire.” But the talented actor is expanding her range, debuting her first film as director, “Tanya,” at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017. The short film – written by Sam Forman – will be part of “Female Filmmakers Night” at the Midwest Indie, and is part of Raymund’s involvement with Hidden Tears Project, an organization dedicated to raising consciousness by creating media on gender inequality, sexual abuse and human trafficking.
