I'm trying to watch the 1957 movie Tammy and the Bachelor on American Movie Classics, but I can't shake the nagging feeling that Leslie Nielsen's about to bust out with an 'I am serious, and don't call me Shirley" at any moment. It's like having the first five notes of Shave and a Haircut stuck in my head.

How about that? Such is the power of typecasting that I can't even watch a movie with Leslie Nielsen before he was Leslie Nielsen. Come to think of it, I have a hard time watching old clips of OJ playing football as well.
