    His movies were pretty much awful, but his standup was amazing.

    Fair enough, I admit my comment was a tad flippant. Discussing mental health in general is taboo which is heartbreaking. Depression...well, we've all been there, some of us more than others, but it's not something you bring up at parties. Such as stigma attached to it and it's such a goddamn shame.

    Yeah, like this is a terrible list?

    Yes there are some duds in there, but they all can't be home runs. You're such an insufferable old codger sometimes, Christ.

My grandmother was actually a prominent extra in GARP, so it's nice to see her whenever I catch the film on TV.

    MANY years later - maybe around 2003 - I was walking on the UES in Manhattan doing Xmas shopping and I looked up and Robin Williams was walking towards me. He was like a meter away and I just blurted out 'Do you remember Fisher's Island?" - the name of the island. I suddenly felt like a Tourrettes (sp) sufferer and was slightly embarrassed - but he stopped in his tracks and a big genuine smile lit up his face, like it was a genuine happy memory.

    He said "Ohhh, that was a LONG time ago!" And I explained about my grandmother and he shook my hand, wished her well and we exchanged Xmas wishes. And then he suddenly hailed a big ass limo and climbed in with a waive. And I remember thinking that he was just a class act.

    BTW - I should also say that I excitedly watch GARP when it came out on video when I was like 7 and I was like "WTF Mork??". Not a kids movie . . .
    Good stuff. He seems to be the kind of guy who would be genuinely happy to talk to you. Glad to hear that was the case.

    RIP Robin. You will be missed. Good Morning Vietnam was my favorite movie as a kid. I still remember that entire monologue.

    This should bring Timmmmy out of hiding as they were both sad clowns from outer space.

    So, you know...we have that going for us.

    Bad taste? Maybe.
    Would Robin find it funny? Absolutely.

    Great story. I have a friend who met him once too and has a similar story. He really seemed like a genuinely nice, gracious person, especially towards fans.

    great story...

    I have a soft spot for Garp as well, aside from being my favorite Irving book, I thought he was perfect in the role. Also there were so many scenes shot in familiar places, near the clock tower in Roslyn, his house in Eastchester, EHS, guys I'm friendly with now had roles as extras as well in the wrestling scenes and ending. To a man they say Williams was a great guy back then.

    Great book and movie, cannot even imagine someone else in that role. People often forget that in discussing his body of work; On the other hand, I was an usher in the Fresh Meadows movie theatre when Popeye came out...omg...teh suckage....I saw that mess 50 times.

    One of his small comments that stuck with me...."Why do they call it rush hour when no one is moving?"

    RIP Mrs. Doubtfire and thanks for the laughs.

    If you put together all the times I had to be in the theatre to attend to ushering chores in small chunks of time..I only watched it through once and demanded a refund...even though I worked there and dint pay. Manager was a not amuse.
