John Keating, played by the late Robin Williams in 'Dead Poets Society', 1989:
Tom Hanks via FB:
"Let's remember the fiery genius, the long, long strings of laughter, the awe at the energy and the performances that lit up the room, the screen, the world. Let's remember Robin Williams. Hanx"
Woody Allen, 'Crimes and Misdemeanors', 1989:
"Where I grew up... in Brooklyn, nobody committed suicide... you know, everyone was too unhappy."
Looks like Mr. Williams was happy.
I adore Robin Williams in quite a few of his films and have watched them multiple times but I particularly love him in Patch Adams (1996) and Dead Poets Society (1989).
They are scathing commentary on our education system, apart from many other things like parenting, medical care etc.
