Leslie Nielsen–1926 to 2010

November 28, 2010 | | Comments 1

Leslie Nielsen passed away today at the age of 84 due to complications from pneumonia. Since everyone else is on the Internet talking about his “Naked Gun” movies, I thought I would take a moment to remember his work in Forbidden Planet. Arguably the best sci-fi film of the 1950s and certainly my personal favorite of the era.  I always had this feeling that “Forbidden Planet” and Nielsen’s work in particular, inspired more than a few  portrayals of later  starship captains…

He will be missed.
