The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery has installed a photograph of celebrated American comedian and actor Robin Williams today. 

The work is in the first-floor gallery where the museum memorializes the passing and celebrates the lives of people represented in the museum’s collection. The photograph was taken for Time magazine by Michael Dressler in 1979.

Williams was a madcap genius in performances of all types of entertainment, from stand-up to feature films. 

Known initially as a comedian, he surprised with his ability to play serious dramatic roles. 

His breakthrough came in the 1970s TV comedy Mork and Mindy; as the alien Mork, much of Williams’ dialogue was improvised, as would be the case in most of his comedic roles. 

Once established, Williams worked tirelessly in show business, going on to appear in many feature films, including Good Morning, Vietnam (1987), Dead Poets Society (1989) and Mrs. Doubtfire (1993); he won an Oscar for his role as the psychologist in Good Will Hunting (1997).
He played Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009). He also did voice over work in animated films and returned to television with The Crazy Ones (2013-14).

I am often surprised when people talk about the total implausibility of the events in Márquez’s fiction. Having been born and lived in a deeply spiritual and extraordinarily resourceful part of the Caribbean, a lot of what might seem magical to others often seems quite plausible to me.

Of course a woman can live inside her cat, as the character Eva does in Márquez’s 1948 short story ‘Eva Is Inside Her Cat.’ Doesn’t everyone have an aunt who’s done that?

Last Sunday on the CBS drama series The Good Wife, something major and unexpected happened. Our TV critic, David Bianculli, has a lot to say:

For the past few years, whenever I’ve been challenged to name a series on broadcast TV that’s the equal of shows produced for cable or streaming networks, my instant go-to example has been The Good Wife on CBS. And boy, did series creators Robert and Michelle King prove that this past weekend.
