Do you remember Penny Marshall in all her remarkable TV roles?


Penny Marshall was the first female director in Hollywood to helm a movie that grossed more than $100 million. Behind the camera, she gave us wonderful films like Big and A League of Their Own

Of course, before she was breaking the glass ceiling, Marshall was splitting our sides on television, with her brilliant brand of physical comedy. She appeared on several classic sitcoms throughout the Seventies — and continued to make cameos into the modern day.

See if you can place all of her wonderful performances. Match these images to the correct show title.

I first saw her as Myrna on "The Odd Couple". I remembered her mainly for that obnoxious laugh and I always imagine women named "Myrna" as being like Marshall's character.

11/12. I guessed "Monk" for the last one, but I should have looked at that suit and tie in the background to have gotten "Nash Bridges".

I remember the Anita Cappuccino character even though I rarely watched Chico and the Man. She complained to many that all everyone said to her was "I need a cup of coffee".
