From her first film appearance in a movie in which she tap-danced with Gene Kelly, Williams worked with the cream of Hollywood. Famed directors cast her into three instant-classic films: George Cukor in Travels with My Aunt (1972), George Lucas in American Graffiti (1973), as Ron Howard's girlfriend, for which she earned a BAFTA nomination as Best Supporting Actress, and Francis Ford Coppola in The Conversation (1974). In 1974, she collaborated on a writing team with actress and producer Penny Marshall, whose brother Gary was the creator of the hit television program Happy Days. Williams and Marshall became popular characters on that show, and were so warmly received that Gary Marshall created a spin-off called Laverne & Shirley featuring the two women, which quickly became the number one rated show on television. Williams earned a Golden Globe nomination for the role of Shirley Feeney in 1978.
Williams later went on to have a prolific career in film, television and stage. She has performed onstage in the national tours of Grease, Deathtrap and Moon Over Buffalo, and a regional production of Nunsense. She made her Broadway debut as daffy Mrs. Tottendale in The Drowsy Chaperone at the Marquis Theatre in 2007. In 2015, her memoir Shirley, I Jest! (co-written with Dave Smitherman) was published. In the same year, Williams engaged in celebrity branding for the senior citizen service Visiting Angels. Me, Myself, & Shirley is her first one-woman show.
