      Sad news, indeed. The Naked Gun and Airplane! were my 2 favorite comedies. I'll always remember him as Frank Drebin posing as Enrico Palazzo singing the National Anthem. And of course "......Bingo!".

      R.I.P. dude, and thanks for all the laughs.

    A sad loss indeed.

    He joins Don Adams, Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, Graham Chapman and many others, who'll still be making people laugh for many years to come.

    Vale.

    Awwww, what?!

    His movies were fun. Seemed liked a damn cool guy.

    RIP, Leslie Nielsen.

    (I had no idea he was that old :confused.

    P.S. Had a science teacher at high school who was the absolute spittin' image of him. I used to get off taunting him with such lines as "I'm serious ... and don't call me Shirley" and "Red Rock Cider - it aint red, and it don't got rocks in it", in Leslie Nielsen's voice. He hated me!

    Sorry to hear he is gone, I thought he was one of those rare people who was a real comic genius. Airplane is one of my all time favourite films. Loved that line which went something like 'We have to get these people to a hospital'...'Why, what is it?'..'Its a big building with patients in it ,but thats not important right now'.
