Default RIP Tony Curtis

Died last night of heart failure. In Las Vegas.

Though frankly I was a bit surprised since I thought he had already passed.

I remember enjoying the Curtis-Martin movies when I was but a young 'un.

We met him earlier this year at a hotel that we were staying at. We got into the same elevator. He was in a wheelchair and had a care-taker with him. He was very nice to the kids and took a picture with them.

RIP Mr. Curtis...

RIP Tony!

What was the movie he did with Julie Andrews and host of other big celebs, back in the late 60's early 70's where the the whole house and pool slid down a cliff during a rain storm? GREAT movie!

I'm too young to know what Tony Curtis was all about. I just knew him from being "Stony Curtis" on the Flintstones.

RIP, Mr. Curtis. He had some rough times, but all in all, not a bad life for the son of a poor Hungarian immigrant tailor from the Bronx.

Lucky man, I can only hope to get that many years. It seems the rich live into their 80's the poor, who knows. I guess good health care matters.
