We have fond memories of watching Leslie Nielsen in the cinema reducing us to tears of laughter with his loaded one liners and extraordinary range of physical comedy for a man of his age. Trying to get a breath in between the jokes during the first Naked Gun film is an experience we now use to gauge the actual funniness of present day comedy movies…unfortunately very few have matched that standard. He was very much a large part of our movie going lives as we were growing up and his character Lt Frank Drebben would always make us laugh no matter how cheesy or corny the wordplay joke was. Rather than witter on about how fantastic we thought the man was here are a few cherry picked examples of his greatness. RIP Leslie Nielsen.
