We have clearance, Clarence.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

I’m sure the entertainment junkies of the world are saddened by the loss of Peter Graves the star of Mission Impossible, and someone who I worked with in the movie Airplane. He was a very pleasant and friendly person away from the camera and although I only worked with him that one time, I felt that I had made a friend. On the big screen he played the villain in one of my favorite films, Stalag 17.  I will be forever asked to repeat some of the lines we performed in Airplane for the rest of my life and I will always think of Peter when I say “We have clearance, Clarence”. I send my condolences to his family and friends.
