Remembering Leslie Nielsen

The comedy community lost one of its all time greats when “Airplane!” and “Naked Gun” star Leslie Nielsen passed away from pneumonia near his Ft. Lauderdale home yesterday. Fans and celebs are flooding the web with tributes to the late great star, but we think this very candid moment from a Canadian morning show sums up Leslie Nielsen perfectly. Sweet, silly, simultaneously slapstick and dead pan. Rest in peace, Lt. Drebin. You served us well.

It’s so tragic that Leslie passed away. I always felt like he should have made more movies and become more famous than he was. The Naked Gun series and Airplane are true classics in my book.

A wonderful article. In my life, I have never seen a man be so selfless in helping others around him to get along and get working.

even not for his parents. She has never thought such a man would buy her a pair of world-famous brand boots, and she hasn’t noticed any sign of that as well
