Played the part of a real disc jockey in the military who is sick quite rebellious quite revolutionary. And it was a movie also that had to have a serious side to mean were there were serious moments in that movie in this was that the brilliance of Robin Williams. I think that this was one of the movies that really showed him as a I'm a great comedian. But also showed him as a as a very serious actor in those touching moments about Vietnam. The other interesting thing about good morning Vietnam was and I remember talking about this on the year when this came out and in 87. This was the first time a miracle laughed. At Vietnam. Not laughed -- -- the first time that we had fun with Vietnam so it was a groundbreaking movie in 1987. The war for that generation hand held such as stigma. And it was such. Such a negative thing time and in so many ways. And yet that was the first time that was such a breakthrough movie because it was the first time we we actually. Laughter I guess it had been long enough we actually left it. And Vietnam we don't laugh at the people who weren't. We feel we didn't laugh that Vietnam is much is between. We were able to have fun with a very very. Serious situation. Which we quite often do but that was the first time we did it with the Vietnam. Everything is okay.

And you might remember there's the Fisher -- Which are Robin Williams in that showed a very serious side if Robin Williams. And he played this character of the movie was. Jeff Bridges was also in the Fisher king. This was a movie that had a tremendous message and it was about. You we we all have things in our lives that we have to -- We all have things in our lives that we have to overcome. And Robin Williams was a character who had much to overcome in his life and it was essentially about slaying the red night. In his life overcoming. That an obstacle.

You're not cured. And Robin Williams did had this. Deep. Sensitive. Sand side. And in meeting him interviewing him in Los Angeles that's the one part of him that all these years has stood out most in my mind and -- was in 1987. And from that moment on that's what I that's what stood out most in my mind was that's was when I was talkative and cutting into talking about himself. And this is his facial expression changed. And it became very serious. And I could see that this was a -- very deep person who had real issues and the comedy was just the company was like a custom. The company was was his way of of dealing with a steep side it was a it was covering up. The deep side it was it was said to him and there are a lot of comedians. It has kept pressing issue.

When we come back we'll play a clip from the bird -- as we remember Robin Williams tonight's -- -- -- -- hero when you heard today that Robin Williams was found dead of an apparent suicides at the age of 63. What's the first thing that came to your mind about Robin Williams what role first came to mind. Here's a Texan reason I really remember him doing crazy -- it's and they Johnny Carson show potential Johnny Carson. Here's a text right about now. Four saint Peter is at the pearly gates scratching his head as Robin Williams is doing all his best stuff. Here is attacks that says says speak about comic relief he was also a great philanthropy philanthropist. He did give back. And here's a text I I think one of the best movies Robert Williams was in it was fly over I just love that movie and I've gotten a number of text from people lover was their favorite movie. I like good morning Vietnam I love Good Will Hunting I've loved it poet's society those were mine so my favorite probably his movies. But my actually favorite ones the birdcage. Course you can pass them. Great form and great to rent and that we can do what's. Behind me absolutely. We've got five hours. -- first. Too -- down up again. -- -- -- Teaching act like a man. All right. Attitude and -- that's what the food. Spitzer must on the toast. Don't just whom I don't have a little about the mustard and now taken night. And yes media. Men sneaks. Me. -- -- yeah Kiki don't look like make your fingers like I am all right fence topped him overnight pulled me it's. So what's. The important thing to members not to go to pieces when that happens. Get to react like command prompt. Save yourself. Albert. You -- the -- so plots not the Indian life I don't know. How big yet -- that knows no holes left. But it is -- need to get pissed them. All have to remember if I can only -- we're -- -- the spirit these amendments trying to walk us holdings and routes to. Was Robin Williams of the bird -- you're teaching -- -- costar in the movie and Nathan Lane how to be a man. And this was about a gay couple in South Beach Miami. And -- Pacman was the father of Calista Flockhart who was engaged to Robin Williams son. Who was raised by Robin Williams and his male partner Nathan Lane who ran this club called the per occasion in South Beach. And here was a conservative senator. Who was actually helped by them and actually. The into the movie came to a except them but the movie was just subtle so brilliant I. I hope which on again in the next couple days because I'm I'm looking forward to seeing them again. If you haven't seen the birdcage. A Washington it's a brilliant in so many ways. Here is attacks -- -- perhaps the comic genius resulted. From such a tortured core. As a coping mechanism rest in peace favorite Robin Williams movie what dreams may come its profound. Here's another text that -- -- one of the hardest times I've ever laughed in my life was at Robin Williams in nine months. And Hugh Grant was in that movie so wanting. Here's another text it's the first time that I've heard on the radio that conservatives. Have not blamed on Obama. I'm sorry to hear it -- we will miss him. Well it may be some haven't had a chance to figure -- -- nobody's gonna blame Obama for the death of Robin Williams is truly a -- I heard about this earlier today and at first I I just didn't want to believe it today and then heard it was an apparent suicide in and and that's. Any death is tragic. But it's a tragic when someone like Robin Williams with so much to live for. He still has so much left in him. Decided that suicide was the best option. But depression can be a very. Very deep dark illness. And if you're dealing with it if somebody you know is dealing with get help. And as I said earlier in the show I walked by people everyday in every night in the CBD. Who look like they have nothing. They look like they have no reason to live and yet something incited them keeps them going. And they stay alive and they live for the next day. Pick up all the resources -- of all the wealth it in in terms of money unit terms of just people around and think of all that Robin Williams had to live for. And he decided apparently the suicide was the best option which is truly truly stand. I'm scoot -- we'll be right back.
