Today one of those legacies became an era. Today Leslie Nielsen died.
Personally, Aeroplane is easily my top comedy of all time, and it has been right from the start. A good part of that is Leslie's still unmatched knack for facial comedy and slapstick, that keeps popping the laughs - even after the thirty-thousandth screening (give or take a few).
