Robin Williams had been around as a stand-up comic, but it was Mork and Mindy that really launched his career.

Robin played an alien visiter from the planet Ork and that gave him lots of opportunity to improvise with props, etc.

I know I'm in the minority, but my personal favorite Robin Williams role was Dr. Malcolm Sayer in the movie Awakenings.

Dead Poets Society is one of my all time favorite movies in general and certainly one of my favorite roles to see Robin in. Amazing film and one of the few to have a character that uses my name as well (Neil) of course that guy too takes his life in the movie.

A lot of people look to comedians like Richard Pryor or Eddie Murphy and they are funny comedians but I liked the zany, crazy, fucked up that Robing brought. He pushed and tried to be uncomfortable. I idolized his approach to comedy as a kid as I was crude even then having 2 older brothers who thought it was cool to corrupt me early. I remember he did this skit on some sketch comedy show. I could probably Google it and figure it out but it doesn't matter. Robin was young and making a name for himself but he got to meet Frank Sinatra on the show and asked if he could shake his hand and upon doing so he goes totally screwball star struck and says "Oh man I'm so happy I could drop a log." and Sinatra just loses it...maybe I'll hit the youtubes and see if that clip exists somewhere. Cracked me the fuck up!

My first thought of Robin Williams will always be his 1986 A Night at the Met. Passing familiarity with major 1980s political figures recommended.

As I got older I got tired of his comedy. However, when he started taking darker roles he just chewed up the screen. I was mesmerized by his performance in Insomnia.

Despite admiring his darker roles, I'd have to go with his acting in Good Will Hunting as my favorite. It was only a week or two ago that I heard that he had improvised the lines about his wife farting in bed and how it's the small things you love and adore about a person. (Language warning on the scene below)

Williams was brilliant (and creepy) as a loner photo developer in One Hour Photo, a psychological thriller.



Williams' death is very sad. Depression is awful, and even somebody with the resources available to Williams obviously found that a difficult struggle.

I think that this was his first big screen movie role.

I know that it's not a favorite of many, but I always thought that it was an enjoyable family movie.

I have strong memories of when I was a kid being moved by various films depicting the horrors of the Vietnam War. 'Good Morning, Vietnam' was one of those films which juxtaposed his zany comedy with the tradgedies of war to create a very emotional reflection on that conflict. A perfect role for
Robin that showcased his ability to do serious stuff too. Very sad to hear of his passing.

"The World According to Garp" was his second major film and his first "critical darling".

While it was a very funny film at times, it was also his first dramatic role as well. A very good adaptation of a great book, it also introduced John Lithgow to a wider audience.

With all the great films he made later on, this one seems to get forgotten sometimes. IMHO this was the first film that showed just what he was capable of.

My favourite movie with robin williams is patch adams. The way he gets the girl of his dreams and also loses her again. Fantastic acting especially the childrens ward was an incredible movie moment for me.

He will be surely missed. RIP mr. Williams
