      Wow, this list went up to twenty?? Really? Look, I liked the guy as much as anyone else, but judging by Twitter, Facebook etc. you would think he's the most important actor of our generation.

      "...the actor’s last screen appearance to date..." I hope that, "to date" was just a typo.

      You include the terrible Prom Night but forget the wonderful Creepshow, by George A. Romero? I haven't seen Repossessed since it was released on VHS but I remember the gag about Sean Penn punchies the paparazzi. Scary Movie 4 : not very funny except for this bit of dialogue : -The President : Get me Homer Landskirty! -His advisor : Sir, do you mean "Homeland Security"?

      Good call on Creepshow. I'd also include Day of the Animals, just because he has a fight to the death with a bear... he loses.... obviously. Actually after all these years I find that Naked Gun 33 1/3 is the one with the most consistent laughs

      Naked Gun is his masterpiece and is qute simply a masterpiece of comedy. One of the funniest films ever. He was a truly hilarious actor. RIP Leslie Nielsen.

      Forbidden Planet still one of the great sci fi films of all time.
