Leslie Nielson and Irvin Kershner have passed



Two entertainment giants have passed this weekend. One man made me laugh, and another man directed one of the greatest science fiction films of all time. Dramatic actor-turned comedic superstar Leslie Nielson passed away on Sunday at the age of 84 from complications with pneumonia. And film director, and one of George Lucas' film professors, Irvin Kershner passed away at the age of 87. He directed several films, but is best known as the director of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.



Here are some clips to remember them by:
