Club Paradise, about 1984 or thereabouts. It had a great ensemble cast and among them were many SCTV cast members.
He did a favorite guest spot on SCTV where they did the Bowery Boys/ Dead End Kids. His take on Leo Gorsey was hysterical. And Martin Short as Huntz Hall as equally brilliant.
24 Hour Photo was also one of his good dark performances.

Dead Poet's Society...

I find myself quoting or referencing it often. In particular Mr. Keating's thrashing of J. Evans Pritchard's method for judging poetry.

Williams played best, IMO, in "preppy" roles like Professor Keating, Will Hunting's MIT Therapist, etc.

Another not listed here: The World According To Garp
