tony curtis has left the building

tony curtis, a genuinely great actor, has passed on at the age of 85. i grew up watching his films. he was just a guy from the bronx (real name bernie schwartz) who turned out to have real acting talent. i still watch "some like it hot" whenever i run across it on television (although jack lemmon stole that film).

we love you, antonius.

So the Schwartz is no longer with us?

RIP.

Another film with Curtis and Lemmon, one of my all-time faves, is Blake Edwards' 'The Great Race', also with Natalie Wood, Peter Falk, Keenan Wynn, Larry Storch...a classic. Another film fave with Tony is 'The Manitou', a really scary b-movie about the supernatural with Michael Ansara.
