Actor and comedian Robin Williams, star of Mrs Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting, has died at the age of 63.
The actor was first known for his madcap portrayal of an alien in the 1970s television show Mork and Mindy, a character first seen in the sitcom Happy Days.
We all have a ‘favourite’ Robin Williams film, whether it is Good Morning Vietnam or Dead Poets Society or One Hour Photo. The list is endless.
To honour the talent that was Robin Williams, we have chosen seven of his top musical moments according to his films.
The Good Morning Vietnam soundtrack is superb, featuring well-known classics like Beach Boys' ‘I Get Around’, James Brown's ‘I Feel Good’ and Louis Armstrong's ‘What A Wonderful World’. And who can forget the Marvelettes' ‘Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead’? What a song – have a listen to the top selection now.
Robin Williams and the all-star cast gave this film a fun ending, dancing and singing along to the classic Sister Sledge song.
