PENNY MARSHALL DEAD AT 75

Penny Marshall, the amazing actress, comedian and director has died ... TMZ has learned.
Marshall died Monday night at her Hollywood Hills home. We've learned the cause of death was complications from diabetes.

Penny's first recurring role was playing Myrna Turner on "The Odd Couple," which was directed by her brother. She also appeared on "Happy Days" with Cindy Williams, and they became famous from their spin-off sitcom, "Laverne & Shirley." It became a monster hit in 1976 and ran for 8 seasons. Her character's moniker -- the "L" for Laverne on her sweater -- became one of the most famous logos in television.

A wonderful actress and director. I was a regular in front of the set on Laverne & Shirley nights. I also did not recall until reading the coverage tonight that she directed Robin Williams in Awakenings, Tom Hanks in Big, etc.

R.I.P.
