He is at once cross-dresser Mrs. Doubtfire and middle-aged Peter Pan, Mork from Ork and Vietnam broadcaster Adrian Cronauer. He has been in more $100-million-grossing movies than any actor in history....Robin Williams is a stand-up comic, actor, and Grammy winner, has provided the voices of beloved animated characters, like Aladdins Genie, and has starred in the popular sitcom Mork & Mindy. He was named Video Man of the Year in 1996 by the Video Software Dealers of America, and has appeared in over twenty remarkably popular films (including Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam, Awakenings, Hook, Nine Months, Jumanji, and The Birdcage). Along with Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg, he lends his name, heart, and wit every year to HBOs Comic Relief, which benefits Americas homeless. He has also had his share of real-life difficulties, including a drawn-out divorce and a crippling drug-abuse problem.The Robin Williams Scrapbook includes details on his early years in stand-up, all of his film and TV work (including memorable appearances on late-night shows), his development as a serious actor (sometimes!), and his role as a devoted husband and father. Dozens of photos (many in color) and a fun trivia quiz support the text.Here is the ultimate pictorial tribute to this eclectic and brilliant comedic mind.
