…and don’t call me Shirley!

Leslie Nielsen, a very talented actor with initially vast unknown comedic talent, has died. Airplane!, the first time he acted in a comedic role, is one of my all time favorite movies. Leslie was one of the very few masters of timing and dead pan delivery, and I will forever love his work.

I’d love to see a remake of the “…and don’t call me Shirley” scene, starring Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd.
