'Raising Helen' Pays Tribute to Moms

Now that he's worked with a grown-up Hudson, Marshall says he sees plenty of similarities between the actress and her mother — even accidentally calling for "Goldie" when he meant "Kate." Marshall said it's an embarrassing goof, but an easy one to make.

He said it was a "pleasure" to work with Hawn's daughter, and he hopes one day to work with a third generation. "She just had the baby. I'm waiting to work with Ryder, we'll do a picture together," said Marshall.

His legacy points to an ability to spot talent, from TV sitcoms Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley to films including Pretty Women. He calls himself a sports nut who enjoys the competition of the box office, but these days he has just one mark to rate success.

"It's really about health," said Marshall. "I have no complaints I think if you've got some health you can do anything. If it's a hit or it's not, what's the difference?"
