Tributes for Garry Marshall, maker of stars who died at age 81 CNN - July 20, 2016
By his own admission, director Garry Marshall was never good at tooting his own horn. He once said he needed others to do it for him, especially early in his career. Someone to tell him he was good enough and give him a little push. These days, it'd be hard to find a big name in Hollywood who couldn't tell you a hundred reasons Marshall -- the man behind hit shows like "Happy Days" and "Laverne and Shirley" and 18 films, including "Pretty Woman" -- was so good. Especially those whose now towering careers were built on a foundation set by the legendary director, who on Tuesday passed away at age 81.

Launched on July 16, 1969, it carried Mission Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. On July 21 (0256 GMT), Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to land on the Moon, while Collins orbited above.
