Leslie Nielsen, Dead at 84

In MemoriumLeslie Nielsen was 84. He experienced success as a serious actor in the films Forbidden Planet and The Poseidon Adventure before achieving his greatest successes in the comedy films Airplane! and The Naked Gun.

I absolutely adored Leslie Nielsen in Airplane! and The Naked Gun. Here's a little something I wrote about the latter.

And of course, he was a proud member of The Canadian Conspiracy who I once proposed should be on our $5 bill. RIP, Leslie.

He had delivered some of the best lines in movie comedy history.
