Leslie Nielsen (2/11/26 – 11/28/10)

In Forbidden Planet, he was the prototype of starship captains for generations to come...
In Creepshow, he was a jealous husband with a video obsession who received his comeuppance in true EC Comics fashion...
In the final episode* of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., he was the last man to try (and fail) to kill Napoleon Solo...
And, as the Swamp Fox, he was Disney's attempt at another franchise based on a real-life American hero like Davy Crockett!
(DYK: Nielsen sang the show's theme song!)
You remember him from Airplane! and The Naked Gun series.
But this is how I remember Leslie Nielsen.

*The final 2-part episode of U.N.C.L.E., "The Seven Wonders of the World Affair". was released theatrically as How to Steal the World.
