Surely, we will.
Thanx for all the laughs, Mr. Neilsen. RIP
Tammy wasn't the only one that had a crush on him..in Tammy and the Bachelor.
Wow, I've never seen that! Thanks. He really helped shape my sense of humor as a child. "And don't call me Surely." still makes me howl. His timing and delivery were completely unique.
Thanks Jaded. great clip
Add me to the list JJ. He's one of those actors who, whenever I see him whilst scrolling through the waste land, I always stop for at least a few minutes to catch a laugh or two. And I'm always surprised to run across him as a much younger actor in a serious role. The other night I caught him as the bad guy in an episode of Have Gun Will Travel (I confess I often watch those old westerns to fall asleep to.)
Doug---Don't call him surely!DSWS---DittoYD G---I missed that one, somehow.Heidi---The master of deadpan.Trish---I'm sure when these commercials were made, but it appears that he worked almost to the end.Mr. C---My favorite serious role of his was, Forbidden Planet. Pure camp. BTW, try Gunsmoke. Much more philosophical, but still an excellent sleep inducer.
"Nice beaver""Thanks, I just had it stuffed."Hahahahahaha. No one was like him.
I'm giving my age away, but he had an excellent police show in the early '60s, "The New Breed." I don't remember if he was a cop or a plainclothes detective; there was very little police action. It was mostly just a really moving human drama. Among other things, the plot for "Death Wish" was lifted almost verbatim out of a New Breed episode.And like Mr. Charleston said, he played the perp in a lot of westerns; also a few Cannon episodes.
Loved his work. He will be missed.
Just made up a poem for this title:T'was the month before Christmas at the TSA
diane---Good line! I remember it.Tom---That's interesting...I didn't know that. I do recall seeing him in a ton of Westerns, though.Chimp---Those bums don't deserve a poem.
he was amazing; as smooth and brilliant in comedy as he was in his other genres..... a great talent and a man who celebrated outrageousness at every opportunity. thanks for this nice tribute.
Harlequin---And did you know he was Canadian?
