The paper that Frank hands to Hapsburg during the dinner party which shows Hector Savage's photo (Anthony James) is a page taken from the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, High School - 1960 yearbook. Anthony James was a member of that graduating class. Although his picture was a picture of Hector Savage at the time of the movie, the rest of the photos were actual classmates of Anthony James.

David Zucker, the director of this spoof, shows he can give the viewer a fun time because the way he gave the right touch to this funny movie. "The Naked Gun 2-1/2" is a film which makes fun of other movies about an inept police detective who does everything wrong, but in doing so, he gives us an occasion for laughter that in most of the situations work.
Of course, one wouldn't imagine anyone playing this Lt. Frank Drebin, but Leslie Nielsen. This actor with the rubber face, is a natural for this type of comedy. The opening sequence with the White House dinner with the older Bushies is a hoot. Poor Barbara Bush is the butt of all the visual jokes as she is seated next to Drebin. But the best moment in the film is the rendition of "Besame Mucho" by Mr. Nielsen and George Kennedy dressed in mariachi costumes. It is a riot!
The leading lady, Priscilla Presley, seems to be the perfect match for Mr. Nielsen. They play well together. The others in the film, George Kennedy, Robert Goulet, Richard Griffiths, and the rest, do an excellent job in their clowning around to produce the laughter and good time we experience.
This is a film to recommend to anyone suffering depression.
