R.I.P. Leslie Nielsen

Just a note in memory of Leslie Nielsen; not a classic actor by any means but one who will be warmly remembered.

Although gaining fame late in his career for comedies such as Airplane and the Naked Gun series, to me he will always be Commander J.J. Adams of interplanetary cruiser C-57D in ‘Forbidden Planet’, a ground-breaking movie that almost literally blew my mind when I saw it as an eight-year-old. (What’s more, the lucky devil got to cuddle the delectable Anne Francis)

” . . and if you don’t so something about it soon it’ll be coming right through that door!”
