08:20 am - Don't call me Shirley
The very first lj-icon I had was a pic of Leslie Nielsen. In those days you could only have two or three icons, you had to drop one if you had a new idea, so I don't have it any more. But I have always had very warm feelings about the guy. Sorry to have to say goodbye to him, but he has had a good career by any standards, from Forbidden Planet to Airplane! and beyond.

I heard on the news while waking up, that Lesley somebody, who played the naked girl in the Airplane films, died; and thought "I don't remember any naked girl in the Airplane films!". Later I realised I'd misheard "Naked Gun".

They never mentioned Forbidden Planet.

I was just watching Police Squad the other day and remembering watching it as a teenager and thinking, man, ol' Nielsen must be getting pretty old...
