TAFT, Calif. - Taft has a special connection to Robin Williams.
Williams shot one of his earlier films, “The Best of Times” in and around Taft in 1985.
The film itself is about the rivalry between Taft High School and Bakersfield High School.
During filming, as the legend goes, Williams spotted a crew pouring concrete and placed his hand prints and autograph in the wet cement.
After news of Williams' suicide became public Monday, people started laying flowers at the spot.
People who lived in Taft at the time the movie was shot say Williams was friendly and approachable.
Williams even accepted invitations to go to people’s homes for dinner.
