Tony Curtis (1925 – 2010)

 

Iconic and quite prolific actor, raconteur, matinee idol and father of actress Jamie-Lee, Tony Curtis passed away yesterday of a heart attack at age 85. Were you a fan of comedic Curtis (Some Like it Hot, The Great Race) or dramatic Curtis (The Defiant Ones, Spartacus) or late-period horror Curtis (The Manitou, Brainwaves)? Or all of the above. We seem to be running out of Hollywood legends as of late.

The Guardian has more and lots of video clips.
