Robin Williams' Top 10 Best Movies 1

It’s been two years since the death of famous comedic actor, Robin Williams. His 65th birthday would have been July 21st. He won four Golden Globes, five Grammys, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, an Oscar, and two Emmys, not to mention over $3 billion in lifetime grosses — not bad for a stand-up comedian who became known because of his roles in the star of Mork and Mindy, a spinoff sitcom from Happy Days about a goofy alien. We have mostly selected Williams’ more recognized roles, which meant excluding some of his smaller ones in films such as Hamlet and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, but we think you’ll agree that what ended up on the top ten list were still some of his best roles
