Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014


 Initially, I fell in love with Robin Williams watching the television show, “Mork and Mindy” and later in movies, where he became a serious actor.  He never moved away from comedy, that was his gift.  One of the first movies I saw was a classic remake of a children’s favorite, Hook, the story of Peter Pan as an adult.  Robin Williams portrayed Peter Banning, who visits an older Granny Windy and rediscovers Neverland, the Lost Boys and his innocence.  The movie offered a lot of moral gems for a generation of young people who are now adults.

 As an adult, I saw Williams transform into a serious actor, especially in my all-time favorite Williams movie, Dead Poet’s Society.  He worked as an English professor (Prof. John Keating) at an all-male very conservative boarding school.  His way of teaching, his style, was radically different than other professors. They would, with great suspicion, watch his every move and eventually were successful in having him removed.
