Saddly when i logged into EQ2 last night i read in 1-9 chat that Mr. Neilsen passed away.
at first i thought this was a joke.
saddly though i was mistaken.
my first memory of watching his movies, was as a child watching a saturday matinee movie called Forbidden Planet, by far one of the best Science fiction films, one with a beautiful adaptation on Hamlet. next i saw him in Airplane, and remember laughing harder as i got older and understood the wit of his straight faced delivery.
I even remember "From the Files of Police Squad" and watching all 6 of the aired episodes with my cousins.
while most may remember him from Airplane or the Naked Gun series, or perhaps Dracula Dead and Loving it.
he was a good actor, one full of wit and humor.. fond of playing practical jokes.
take his appearance on Johhny Carson's Tonight Show.. ( insert Whoopee Cushion )
" we've got to get these people to a hospital."
" a Hospital? what is it? "
" it's a large building with people, but that's not important right now."
