Well that movie The World According to Garp had comedy and drama is was overall a good movie. This show Robin Williams acting ability he was a complete actor. I agree he could have play any type of characters he was just that good. Well Good Will Hunting finally show how good he was as a over all actor not just a funny man.

I liked the Bicentennial Man though many apparently didn't (May have helped to read the book).... My favorite movie of his was Good Will Hunting. But his stand up acts will be what I remember the most.

I found a neat story that imagine most of you have read lately. But I think it shows a good side that many of us sometimes don't associate with the people that entertain us on the big screen, etc. Of course many of us usually only hear the negative. But anyway ----->

Jamie Masada recalled a fundraiser he, Williams and comedian Paul Rodriguez held for a Los Angeles high school to help equip its football team. The benefit left the trio drenched in sweat because the school auditorium was stifling hot.

"A couple days later I got a call from the principal of the school, telling me that Robin Williams came back, brought a contractor to put in air conditioning for nothing and didn't want anybody to know about it," Masada said.

Now that's being cool.... In more ways than one.

Well I have the honor to meet Robin Williams a few times in my life he live only 15 miles away from me seeing around and about. So I was able to know him in a different way then most. But for me with movies it's hard but it would have to be.
The Bird Cage & Good Morning Vietnam but there was so many movie he was so good in. The fans of Robin William will have the pleasure to see a total of three new movies that will come out in the next couple years that were finished.
Thanks for your reply..
How very nice to meet him.

Once I saw his house, when I was on holiday
In San Francisco(many miles from here:)

I've hear a lot about THE BIRD CAGE,
someone on radio who was reviewing his movies
a couple of days ago,
advised ' if there is ONE of his movies not to miss,
Iet it be THE BIRD CAGE'

Robin Williams was by far my most favorite comedian and I always dreamed of someday meeting him, I guess that will have to wait for now....
Truly saddened by his passing, one of those things you have a hard time believing.

Just released that he had Parkinson's disease.
I've kind have pondered myself what my wishes would be if I were faced some total debilitating "whatever" that were facing me, such as Parkinson's can be.What people must also think about is their family when they have something real hit home, like this probably was for him.

First the selfish thoughts come to mind...do I really want to be helpless, and dependent on others? NO I don't. But, I understand that you usually take what cards are dealt and play them the best you can, but these instances make you think.

You start thinking of your family. I know my family is very close knit, and I've played this game before... helping care for the people that raised me,when they became unable to care for themselves. Of course nurses and doctors were there when needed, but the primary care provider was us, the family. You didn't trust anyone else to do it. We worked shifts around the clock to give them everything try they needed. Whether they were home, at a hospital...we were keeping up with records of what treatments, medications, insurance, medical bills headaches,everything. You deal with all the $hit, and I mean literally.

When a loving family is present, they are there for you, they just don't stick you in a home...wishing you perish quickly, so any inheritance isn't all used up, and God forbid they should spend any of their own money for the nonsense. The good ones are there, whatever it may cost out of love. And anyone that's dealt with very serious medical bills, knows it can cost a fortune, plus some. The fact of the matter is... your loved ones lives are put on hold ( just for you) if you get sick, not only all your assets but theirs may be totally spent by the end. So they can set just around and worry, deal with all this stuff... and then just you die anyway (as is natural).

I'm not even close to assuming that I have the money and assets that the late and great Robin Williams (may he forever R.I.P) may have had... but I do have several thousand dollars, not counting insurance (also a few thousand), that I have plans for my family to benefit from, when I do pass on. I don't want it all lost for my own care, which is... entirely and realistically possible. I certainly don't regret a second of caring for my loved ones in their final years or the financial cost involved. The only thing I dearly miss, is them.

To some of the jerks that think Robin Williams will burn for taking his own life, like I've read in this thread? It's not our place to judge or even presume what he was thinking about. We don't know what may have been going through his mind at the time. But chances are, he was thinking about much more than just himself.

Your welcome Grace, he live in this small little town called Tiburon,Ca it's a very upscale neighborhood for the well off right on the San Francisco Bay. Oh yes The Bird Cage has to be one of the funniest movies you will ever see Grace it's a DVD you must buy you will love it from start to finished.I for sure have those memories of Robin Williams forever he really was not one of those actors that didn't have time to say hello or tell a quick joke.

Well of so far report Robin Williams, did not leave a suicide note. So everyone is just will be guessing what he was suffering mentally or physical. We the fan will probably will never know why he hung him self it first report he tried to slice his wrist but he thought against this idea so ended up hanging him self with a belt from a door. I just want to remember Robin Williams from on the theater & TV making me laugh and think what a incredible actor/comedian of my generation how lucky was I able to be around and watch him.

We weren't talking about him last week
because he wasn't dead LAST WEEK!!!

Thought you might factor that in by yourself.

I love Clint Eastwood an actor, for example,
and all his stunning Spaghetti a Westerns..
but I haven't been posting about him recently on Topix ..
because he hasn't been the victim of a tragedy.
