Robin Williams was a rare actor that could make you laugh one minute and make you cry the next.

He was widely thought of as having transitioned to drama later in life, but if you look back you can see that throughout his entire career he stepped back and forth over the line between manic glee and pure heartbreak.

Here are some of Robin's movie moments that made us cry the most:

As early as Good Morning Vietnam, Robin showed us his depth as he reminded us in a moment with the troops how important his on-air silliness was.

In The Fisher King, Robin's deranged, quixotic homeless hero brought a moment of clarity and romance to a very sad first date.

Before the hysterical premise of Mrs. Doubtfire gets going, before the wigs and prosthetics, Robin and costar Sally Field give what is probably the realest portrayal of a crumbling marriage ever seen in a family comedy.

    In The Fisher King, when his character is shot, he says, "Thank you." I'm remembering that comment today.

    Perhaps the most dramatic and heart-wrenching movie he ever made was "What Dreams May Come." It's one of my favorites and it's such a beautiful depiction of ever-lasting love.
