Tonight we are watching “Popeye”. This was released during the holiday season in 1980. I remember going to the theater to see it with my parents on Xmas day. I was 10, and Robin Williams was a big deal to me in those days because I was a huge fan of the “Mork and Mindy” television show. Heck, Robin has never ceased to be a big deal in my life. He is still missed, not only by me but by most of the people on the planet who were touched by his work. The world is a lesser place without him. We still have his movies, and the wonderful memories that he left us.
Honorable Mention: Buck Rogers. The movie was a pilot for the TV series.
“My Top Nine”… it seems to be a thing now. Well, it’s only my second top nine list, but is could be a thing. Why not a Top Ten? In both cases I really couldn’t come up with ten picks, for the life of me.
This one is simple. Comic strips to the big screen. These are some of the best, live action, examples of this genre of film. When I say “best” I mean, of course, my best.
Here, at the QM cave, we are remembering and celebrating Robin Williams today.
Robin Williams and Koko the gorilla. Click for video on YouTube. It fills me with happiness and deep sorrow at the same time.
