Breaking news:
Tony Curtis dead at 85

Publication: New York Times
Date: 30 September 2010

Not one day after I post a review saying that the tabloids suck at predicting who will die, they get their fourth correct prediction of the year. Tony Curtis, the Oscar nominated actor whose greatest popularity came in light comedy, has died at the age of 85 of cardiac arrest in his Las Vegas home. The Globe printed a story about his health woes in late July.

My favorite role of his is in Sweet Smell of Success with Burt Lancaster. He was also very good in Some Like It Hot and Spartacus. He was married to Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis is his daughter so, good on ya, Tony.

Best wishes to the family and friends of Tony Curtis, from a fan.

I guess it wasn't "News to Them" afterall.

He was one helluva good looking SOB. And my sister once met him--he was charm personified.

Yeah, Tony Curtis had the look all right, and unlike other good looking guys of his era like Rock Hudson and Liberace, Tony liked the ladies!

The odds say it has to happen occasionally.

From what I hear, he liked enough ladies for himself AND those other two dudes.
