    [R.I.P] Leslie Nielsen of 'Naked Gun' fame dies at age 84

    Leslie Nielsen of 'Naked Gun' fame dies at age 84

    He became known as a serious actor, although behind the camera he was a prankster. That was an aspect of his personality never exploited, however, until "Airplane!" was released in 1980 and became a huge hit.

    As the doctor aboard a plane in which the pilots, and some of the passengers, become violently ill, Nielsen says they must get to a hospital right away.
    Great actor in a lot of hilarious movies.

    I liked him as SWAMP FOX.

    I liked him best in movies like Forbidden Planet and in the Swap Fox series, but that was too long ago for many to remember.

    I see that haymarket remembers, those were the days when TV was worth watching. It brings back a lot of great TV memories of that time like The Nine Lives of Elfego Baca with Frank Loggia, and Texas John Slaughter, with Tom Tryon.

    Leslie Nielsen kept some really good company and made great memories for several generations and there are very few actors of his caliber left and few with his class coming along.

    NOTE: Neilsen was preceded in death by his movie "2001 - A Space Travesty".

    I loved Leslie's comedic genius and from what I understand, he was a stand-up guy in real life. RIP.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
