Mork vs. Mindy?

The upcoming biography Robin by David Itzkoff reveals a few unsettling details about the behind-the-scenes of the popular sitcom. Pam Dawber, Williams' co-star, who portrayed Mindy, recently gave an interview to the writer of Robin's life story. She described, what some might consider, inappropriate behavior of the show's main star.

Dawber revealed that Robin used to grope her and do "the grossest things" to Pam, as well as some other people on set. According to the actress, the late legendary comic would inappropriately grab her, and even wrestle her to break wind on her.

In today's climate of multiple sexual harassment allegations, this story gained the public's interest. However, Dawber explained that filming the show was "so much fun," and she never got offended by Williams. The show's director, Howard Storm, also contributed to the case by saying that comic didn't intend to insult anyone, and "it was just Robin being Robin."

It does look like the previous co-stars separated after the show on friendly terms. Around 4 years ago, Pam Dawber starred on Robin's TV show The Crazy Ones, and they gave an interview about all the silliness which was happening on the set of Mork & Mindy back in the day.

Remembering the comedy legend

Robin Williams was a man of infinite talents. He's mostly remembered as a comedy icon, but Williams had a strong dramatic side to him as well. His acting career, which included such films as Dead Poets Soceity (1989), Aladdin (1992), Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), and Jumanji (1995), led him to an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1998 for Good Will Hunting (1997).

He could make the audiences cry, just as easily as he could make them laugh. Williams' voice impressions will be forever remembered as Hollywood's most remarkable ones.
