When my son, who attends college in Kentucky, called me last Tuesday night, I asked him what he was doing? "I'm watching Robin Williams' movies," he said. We didn't spend a lot of time talking about Williams' death, but it got me to thinking how universal Williams was during his lifetime. Young and old loved Williams' films and TV series, and here is a quiz to see how many you remember.
