We lost Leslie Nielsen this weekend, a talented actor who managed a rarity in the business – success crossing genres. Much of his early career saw him as a leading man and hero in disaster flicks like The Poseidon Adventure. Later on, he’d become a hit spoofing this very genre in Airplane!
Airplane! is perhaps one of the great classic comedies that should be on any stoner’s Netflix queue. The one scene with Barbara Billingsley (who also passed this year) translating jive is hilarious.
Celebrate the comedy, get a little high tonight.
