Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Well he was one of the great Hollywood actors and how can you not like someone who was a good comedian on top of being nice to look at :lol:
My favourite movie is Some Like it Hot and his screen partnership in there with Jack Lemmon was flawless - they both supported Ms. Monroe in the best possible way so it was no surprise that the film became almost an instant classic.

RIP Tony :D

That's sad. :( Remember him in The Persuaders with Roger Moore?

RIP Tony.

Rest in peace Tony. :cry:

On a side note, he shared his name with my grandpa who died when i was still a toddler. For some reason I didn't know my grandpa much as an individual so i always asscioated him with famous Tony Curtis for some reason. :oops:

I assume you mean his stage name, as his real name was Bernie Schwarz, and he was of Hungarian descent! I am afraid I always remember his earlier films, before he honed his accent - "Yornder is der carsel of my farder!" Jugula :lol:

But seeing this... it's really hard to believe he's gone... :(

RIP Tony :(
Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

Someone on the BBC boards has said, in all seriousness............. not in the best of health when he died.
