RIP Leslie Nielsen

Nielsen, who has died from pneumonia at the age of 84, was a serious actor until he struck comedy gold at 54 as the hapless doctor in "Airplane!"
"Surely you can't be serious," an airline passenger says to Nielsen's character in the 1980 hit disaster movie send-up.
"I am serious - and don't call me Shirley," came the deadpan reply.....you will be missed Leslie.
