25th Anniversary of Naked Gun
By: Dan Rosenbaum
It’s the 25th Anniversary of the funniest police procedural parody of all time! Based on the short-lived but beloved television series Police Squad!, the film was the first of a highly successful trilogy. Detective Lieutenant Frank Drebin, played by master deadpan comic actor Leslie Nielsen, tries to uncover a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II, all while falling in love with the alluring Jane Spencer, played by the talented and funny Priscilla Presley. Director and co-screenwriter David Zucker (Airplane!; Kentucky Fried Movie), co-screenwriter Pat Proft (Police Academy; Hot Shots!) and entertainment icon Priscilla Presley will sit down with moderator Andy Richter (Conan) for an in-depth look behind the scenes of this comedy classic.
