As we all mourn the loss of the truly gifted Robin Williams, my mind is flooded with all of his truly wonderful performances on television, film and stand-up comedy productions. Here are just a few that I am reminded of: Mork & Mindy (1978-1982); Good Will Hunting (1997); Dead Poets Society (1989); Mrs. Doubtfire (1993); and, Aladdin - voice (1992). If you can just narrow down your favorite performance by Robin Williams, please share which one and why. Thank you answering and remembering.

Hello chef-de-jour, Ah, yes, The Fisher King was a truly fantastic role, just for the reason you have described here! I had forgotten about the Muppets, so thank you for mentioning that one too. Awesome answer!
By the way, Robin's participation in the film helped get it made. He took a big cut in salary but had faith in the film, and in Matt and Ben.
I agree totally, Genna. That role, as you have stated, truly encapsulated who Robin was, indeed! I am glad that bit remained in the scene. Thank you for sharing that about him taking a big cut in salary. Great answer. Hope your Sunday is lovely.
Hi manatita, Thank you for answering, dear heart. When are you going to publish a poem? Hope all is well in your world. I am terrible with names of movies too.
Hi Kim, wow, that is a beautiful way to describe that movie, and I agree. Awesome choice. So glad to see you, and I pray all is well with you and your family. Hugs
Hi Doris, I know, it is so very hard to just narrow it down to one, as I cannot seem to do it LOL. Both of your choices are truly great movies no doubt about that and his particular roles in each are excellent.
Hi tameka carodine, Yes, I remember laughing so hard while watching Mrs. Doubtfire, what a role! Thank you for sharing your choices here. Have a wonderful evening.
