From Crystal… to Billy Crystal

On his 63rd birthday, Robin Williams shared the following photo via Instagram. It depicted him with Crystal, his co-star from the Night at the Museum film series.

Last night, the most striking aspect of Billy Crystal‘s wonderful Primetime Emmys tribute to the late actor and comedian was the photo of Williams displayed throughout. The selection of that picture made Los Angeles Times photo editor Cindy Hively very proud:

There’s another shot of Williams at Hively’s celebrity thumbnails gallery, along with other magical glimpses of Jack Lemmon with Walter Matthau, and more. He was a staff photographer at the LAT for 31 years.

Two great photos of one great man, shared with the world July 21 and August 25. RIP.
