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... :(

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