Remembering Leslie Nielsen

November 29, 2010 |  2:42 pm

Leslie Nielsen, the actor who starred in "Airplane!" and the "Naked Gun" series, died at his home in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., on Sunday. He was 84.

Here's a scene from the 1988 comedy "The Naked Gun," in which Nielsen, playing Lt. Frank Drebin, pretends to be an umpire at a Major League Baseball game.

It will bring a smile to your face, surely. 

And to play on one of Nielsen's funniest lines in "Airplane!", no, I'm not calling you Shirley.
