Detective Frank Drebin
The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! - Wikipedia
A few years after the way-ahead-of-its-time procedural spoof Police Squad! Thanks to a virtually unparalleled rapid-fire gag rate and the godlike comic abilities of its legendary star Leslie Nielsen , The Naked Gun is one of the funniest movies of all time. She turned out to be the perfect choice for the character and played her throughout the whole Naked Gun trilogy. But before Presley landed the role, the producers considered casting Bo Derek as Jane.
All three films are based on their earlier television series Police Squad! As with previous ZAZ spoof comedies, the plot was mostly culled from another—more serious—movie. In this case, it was Telefon wherein people were triggered into assassins via hypnotic phone calls indeed, dialogue in the post-hypnotic suggestion demonstration scene is copied word-for-word from Telefon.
Frank Drebin is a member of Police Squad, a special department of the police force, where he served for many years. He is known for being a bumbling fool, causing lots of problems and trouble for those around them, but being entirely oblivious to it all. Simpson and the trio generally work as a team.
