Robin Williams, who committed suicide Monday at the age of 63, came to fame as a stand-up comedian and sitcom star, but over the course of his long career, Williams proved himself a limitless talent, equally at home in family films, adult dramas and everything in between.

Robin Williams was a talent unto himself, able to ricochet from performances that were riotously funny to ones that were extremely sensitive, even somber. The wide, unstoppable mouth expressed the exuberant humor. The eyes – small, watchful and blue – seemed to express the sadness and the thoughtfulness. Here are some of my favorite movies from his eclectic but distinguished career.
