I think this was Robin's first HBO Special filmed back in 1982 Live in San Francisco.

I'm sure that crowd has some wonderful memories!

Robin Williams was suffering from the early stages of Parkinson's disease at the time of his death, his wife has said.

If I were talkSPORT's Alan Brazil, I'd be even more ashamed of my response to what happened than I damn well should be now. (If you haven't heard about it, have a look around - it wasn't just in the US that you had some truly dickish behaviour in the wake of what happened.)

rewatching some of PATCH ADAMS....

seeing RW in scenes with PS Hoffman is downright depressing and weird.
...the director, Tom Shadyac, subsequently renounced all worldly goods and wealth and has become a sort of spirtiual evangelist!

I scrolled through my iPod while in the office today and picked Mrs. Doubtfire to get through the afternoon. As I listened, I was actually disctracted and not getting much done. All I could do was envision scenes from the movie - tender and hilarious - and realize again what we have lost.

I could only find this one youtube clip of a classic RW scene, as King Of The Moon

(I am not resurrecting this thread just to bump it, per se. But I thought my comments would not be inappropriate here.)

I haven't seen ALL of RW's films, but my favorite is "Moscow On The Hudson". I hadn't seen it in ages, so I popped it in last night.

To me, everything that was wonderful about the man is in that movie.

Did he die again?

Sorry, in the memory of the great Robin, it seems a joke that he might do himself. Asking that question.

What was that old SNL Chevy Chase joke about the Latin President that was "still dead"?

Ah yes, Generalisimo Francisco Franco!

I'm looking forward to his upcoming Christmas movie.

I strongly recommend World's Greatest Dad. He delivers a fantastic performance in it, and the ending is now kind of iconic in my mind. The imagery and song with the emotion of the film's finale is very moving, and it's difficult not to think beyond the character and think of Robin the man himself. There is a...sense of freeing something painful. See the film and you'll understand what I mean.
