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.

Hilarious sequel to 'The Naked Gun: From The Files of Police Squad' **** out of *****
The Naked Gun: From the files of Police Squad was a huge hit back in 1988, so three years later, everyone returns for this funny sequel.
LT. Frank Drebin is back (The legend that is Leslie Nielsen) he's now split from Girlfriend Jane (Pricilla Presley) whose now involved romantically with shady Businessman Quentin Hapsburg (Robert Goulet). Drebin and his cop buddies, Capt Ed Hocken (George Kennedy) & Det. Norberg (O.J.Simpson) investigate when a Scientist Dr Meinheimer (Richard Griffiths) who advocates Solar Energy ahead of Oil,Coal & Nuclear prepares to publish his report to the President, Is suddenly kidnapped and a doppelganger (Griffiths Again) is put in his place. So LT Drebin once again hilariously saves the day.
The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear, while does have a quick cash-in feel, is actually a really good sequel which is almost as good as the original, With funny Gags throughout, The Zucker Brothers and Pat Proft are on top form again.
**** out of *****
Follwed by The Naked Gun 33 1/3 : The Final Insult, while still good and a masterpiece compared to Diasater Movie (2008) or Epic Movie (2007) is slightly inferior to it's predecessors
