    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - 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 near his home at 5:34 p.m., surrounded by his wife, Barbaree, and friends, his agent John S. Kelly said in a statement.
    "We are saddened by the passing of beloved actor Leslie Nielsen, probably best remembered as Lt. Frank Drebin in 'The Naked Gun' series of pictures, but who enjoyed a more than 60-year career in motion pictures and television," said Kelly.

    Nielsen came to Hollywood in the mid-1950s after performing in 150 live television dramas in New York. With a craggily handsome face, blond hair and 6-foot-2 height, he seemed ideal for a movie leading man.
    Nielsen first performed as the king of France in the Paramount operetta "The Vagabond King" with Kathryn Grayson.
    The film - he called it "The Vagabond Turkey" - flopped, but MGM signed him to a seven-year contract.

    My Take: Fizi film za Parody nilikuwa sizipendi hadi nilipokuja kuona hiki kipande cha film ya The Naked Gun hasa hii sehemu akiwa anaoga. Nilicheka hadi mbavu zangu zikauma............. RIP Nielsen.
