I loved the guy. Urbane and charming, but with a macho, brutal edge. And who else but Tony could utter the line, "Yondah lies da castle of my faddah." Black Shield of Falworth.

Don't forget 'The Sweet Smell Of Success', a stone cold classic. Criminally underrated.

don't mean this in a disrespectful way, but he spawned a pretty hawt daughter in jamie lee.

to me, it's not necessarily sad when somebody passes away in their 80s or 90s and they lived a blessed, in this case hollywood, life.

I heard a few snippets from his movies this morning on NPR. I'm not generally a fan of older movies and actors/actresses...so many times they seem to be overacting. From the snippets, he sounded like he fit that mold.

It's probably me, though. I'm sure there's a good reason everyone considers them classics.

The man was gold. TC and 'dichotomy', made for each other.

I knew this thread would take off once Jamie Lee got mentioned.
TC would probably have approved.

I heard a pretty great story about Tony Curtis.

I was in Budapest, & visited an amazing synagogue that has been restored. The building is a remarkable combination of Byzantine, Christian and Jewish elements.

(The Hungarians delayed, but eventually collaborated with the Nazis to clear their Jewish quarter--so next to it is a Holocaust memorial...)

TC was of Hungarian-Jewish extraction, and visited when they started the renovation/restoration and according to the guide provided a large part of the money for the restoration project.

Not what you'd expect from a Hollywood legend with a hawt daughter.

I figured no one would touch upon some conclusions for you, but there are people in this thread and on the forums who could honestly make something out of your statement.
