1. Haha! I forgot about that scene with Leslie Nielsen’s speech. In fact, it’s been many years since I’ve seen “Airplane” – maybe I should give it a go again.

    As for Pat O’Brien’s speech “Knute Rockne – All American”, I completely agree that the understated sadness makes the speech incredibly moving. I think it’s time to see that one again, too!

    • Yes, when I saw it again, I realized it had been way too long. It’s so packed with jokes that you catch new ones each time:) Love Pat O’Brien’s version of Rockne’s speech. I showed it to my students the other day as an example of understated emotion. So moving.
