Robin Williams

1951-2014
I just can't get over the news that Robin Williams is dead. Suicide at that. Such a funny man. Just watched the old movie Popeye with my grandkids and they loved him in it. Jumanji is one of their favorites. He was one of a kind. Just breaks my heart that a man who brought so much laughter to so many was so sad himself.

Here a few clips of Robin.


A very young Robin on a Carol Burnett episode. Hilarious!

Popeye!

An excellent interview with Charlie Rose. The Scottish golf routine is on this one.

  1. Same here, Peggy. He was a wonderful actor and was equally good at serious drama and comedy. He brought out spontaneous laughter in you. I liked many of his films including "The Birdcage" where he gets the better of Gene Hackman.

  2. He will be missed. There are so many people who, like RW, are laughing on the outside and crying on the inside....very sad...depression is still a very misunderstood illness.

  3. We just watched one of his movies last weekend. Always makes you want to watch more. He was one of my favorite actors. So sad:'(
