Following the untimely death of comedian Robin Williams on Monday, Apple has dedicated a special “Remembering Robin Williams” section of the iTunes Store, featuring a collection of his best works, including well-known movies, TV shows and audio recordings of Williams’ stand-up acts.
All the movies are divided into several categories:”Essentials,” “Comedy,” and “Drama.” There are also a photo of the actor and a brief story of his career and other activity in this special section.
“One of the most beloved and unforgettable performers in the history of show business, Robin Williams brought laughter and inspiration to millions. Throughout a career that spanned five decades, Williams evolved from stand up comedian to international movie star. Among the great masters of improv, he transfixed audiences with a mile-a-minute comic energy. Williams’ Golden Globe-winning turn in Good Morning, Vietnam demonstrated that his versatile acting talents were equally suited to evoking dramatic complexity. Many of Williams’ most iconic performances—in Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, and his Oscar-winning triumph Good Will Hunting—were dazzling high-wire acts that left audiences in tears of laughter one minute and tears of poignancy the next”
The company lists more than 40 of Robin Williams’s movies, including such as Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, The Birdcage, Patch Adams, Good Morning, Vietnam, and a collection of his comedy performances.
The Apple.com homepage also features a message from the company’s team:
«We are deeply saddened by the passing of Robin Williams. He inspired us through his passion, his generosity, and the gift of laughter. He will be greatly missed.»
It is not the first time, when Apple has honored someone’s life with a dedicated page on its website, with the others being Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, Jerry York and Steve Jobs.
