'Fly, Be Free'

This was from the pilot episode of “Mork & Mindy,” which my brother and I watched in September 1978. We laughed so hard at this. 

Here are his biggest box office hits, adjusted for inflation:

  Movie Studio Adjusted gross Unadjusted gross Year
1 Mrs. Doubtfire Fox $429,377,700 $219,195,243 1993
2 Aladdin BV $427,405,100 $217,350,219 1992
3 Night at the Museum Fox $301,889,000 $250,863,268 2006
4 Good Morning, Vietnam BV $245,778,800 $123,922,370 1987
5 Happy Feet WB $244,595,300 $198,000,317 2006
6 Good Will Hunting Mira. $240,561,300 $138,433,435 1997
7 Hook TriS $233,806,600 $119,654,823 1991
8 The Birdcage MGM $228,754,200 $124,060,553 1996
9 Patch Adams Uni. $222,823,900 $135,026,902 1998
10 Dead Poets Society BV $196,790,900 $95,860,116 1989

Not a bad group. Even “Popeye,” his first film, directed by Robert Altman, which in my memory got confused reviews, confused box office, but became a cult hit among my slyer friends, even that movie grossed $150 million, adjusted.

Some remembrances:

Fly. Be free.
