The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (2-Dec-1988)

Director: David Zucker

Writers: Jerry Zucker; Jim Abrahams; David Zucker; Pat Proft

Music by: Ira Newborn

Producer: Robert K. Weiss

Keywords: Comedy

Hard-nosed, old school cop Frank Drebin investigates a heroin smuggling ring, foils an elaborate plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II, and is mistaken for Enrico Palazzo. First of three Naked Gun films spun off of the Police Squad! sitcom, which was canceled after 1 episode was broadcast. Leslie Nielsen's deadpan delivers the best spoof of this genre.
