Whenever I think of great comedies that bring tears of laughter to my eyes the two that spring to mind are Airplane and Naked Gun (also the Naked Gun series is a classic). So I was gutted as I checked through the news this morning  and discovered that the star of those two films Leslie Nielsen died aged 84.

From a Sci-Fi geek perspective Leslie starred in the fantastic Forbidden Planet, which if you’ve never seen you should make the effort to give it a look see.

Here’s a cool little video with clips from Airplane and Naked Gun.
