Actress and director Penny Marshall has passed away at age 75. While she got her start working for her brother, producer Garry Marshall, on shows like Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley she later transitioned to directing, making seven films over 15 years. At the time of her death she was readying a documentary about Dennis Rodman, of all people. Supposedly Rodman wanted Marshall to make the film, and nobody else.

Which of Ms. Marshall's films do you consider to be her greatest?

Thanks. I kind of wonder what happened with her career. I think she peaked too early. She was going like gangbusters, a great film every two years, then a few not so good and then she stopped directing.

I also wonder why she stopped acting, but I suppose that goes along with becoming a director.

Hi Jen,

Can you please tell me why you have made a new IMDb account? What happened to your original account?

DC,

I'm not Jen, but Jen answered this in another thread.

IMDb user accounts are limited to 999 lists. Jen has been bumping against that limit for over six months and has had to delete lists associated with polls in order to suggest new polls. She decided to create a new IMDb account. In effect, Jen can now have up to 1998 lists.

I suspect that Jen will eventually have to create a third account when she exceed the 1998 limit.

Dan,

Can we request IMDb to allow the feature to create more (probably unlimited) lists? Is that possible?

If we create a new account (link Jen) after 999 lists, the votes, number of polls an other statistics will be counted under that new profile. How we can manage that?

DC,

No, we cannot currently request IMDb to allow more that 999 lists for an account.

Please see this thread that Jen started two years ago:
Limited number of lists

I am tracking two accounts for Jen and two accounts for LD. This add more complexity to an already complex task for maintaining statistics.

Due to the added work, additional complexity and great chance for error, I will only track multiple IMDb accounts when it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
