Shirley Drebin Dies at 84

LOS ANGELES — Leslie Nielsen, who traded in his dramatic persona for inspired bumbling as a hapless doctor in “Airplane!” and the accident-prone detective Frank Drebin in “The Naked Gun” comedies, died on Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He was 84.
The Canadian-born actor died from complications from pneumonia at a hospital (a big building with patients, but that’s not important right now) near his home at 5:34 p.m., surrounded by his wife, Barbaree, and friends, his agent John S. Kelly said in a statement.

Thanx for making me lol…a lot.

    There are worse ways to die than falling asleep and not waking up. I hope things go well for his family.

    Ed: That’s no way for a man to die. Frank: No…you’re right, Ed. A parachute not opening…that’s a way to die. Getting caught in the gears of a combine… having your nuts bit off by a Laplander, that’s the way I wanna go. Wilma: Oh….Frank. This is terrible. Ed: Don’t you worry Wilma. Your husband is going to be alright. Don’t you worry about anything. Just think positive. Never let a doubt enter your mind. Frank: He’s right, Wilma. But I wouldn’t wait until the last minute to fill out those organ donor cards. Wilma: [crying] Ed: What I’m trying… Read more ยป
