Factual error: At the onset of the baseball game, take a look at the Angel's catcher as Mariner Jay Johnstone steps up to bat. You will see he is wearing just a standard baseball hat under his catcher's helmet. MLB rules requires some form of certified (protective inside and out) plastic helmet for catchers, and thus this would not be allowed. (01:07:35)
9.7/10. The first of a great trilogy. Leslie Nielsen's comedic timing is perfect. George Kennedy, Priscilla Presley, and Ricardo Montalban were all great because they got the style of movie. Lt Frank Drebin is truly one of the funniest characters of all time. I would say this is what launched the idea of Angie Tribecca into the minds of Rashida Jones, Steve Carell and Nancy Carell. The show was a tribute to the genius of this comedic legend and the Zucker brothers and Abrahams team.
Ed: Frank, they're not here for you. Weird Al Yankovic is on the plane.
Trivia: There is a trailer to this movie with an additional gag. After Ludwig has demonstrated his image of an ideal assassin to Papshmir, he sits down with the revolver used in the demonstration which had turned out to be empty. In the trailer shot (in a closeup of Montalban) the gun unexpectantly goes off.
Question: I am watching "The Naked Gun" on the IFC Network, and during one of the commercials they asked a trivia question about the movie that I never saw answered. The question was, "Which famous comedian contributed a scene or gag for the movie", and the choices were Mel Brooks, Steve Martin, and one other name that I do not remember. Does anyone know the answer to this question? I can not find any information about it anywhere. Thank you.
