“You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
A hospital--what is it?
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.”
- Airplane (1980)
A great actor both in drama and comedy, Nielsen always exuded an easy charm and seemed totally down-to-earth despite being one of the most popular comedians of the eighties and nineties, which earned him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I would have loved to have spent a few hours in his company, I'm always looking for a great laugh.
