It is with a very sad heart that I report that one of my all time favorite actors, Tony Curtis, has passed away.
Tony Curtis, born Bernard Schwartz on June 3, 1925, in New York City, was a prolific, extremely talented actor, dancer, painter and much more.
I sometimes feel as though as a little girl, that I grew up with Tony Curtis. My Dad and I watched so many Tony Curtis moves; from his comedy, dancing, serious, dramas, crime dramas, military, gladiator, college type, you name it movies! He could do any type of movie.
He was simply amazing.
I was looking over the Amazon page on Tony Curtis and just reminiscing about each movie there. I have seen them all!
OK, I can’t list them all here!!! There’s just too many! At the end of this article are only a few of my favorites!
There are lots of places to read Tony Curtis’ intriguing biography:
Tony Curtis also has a successful second career as a painter. Check out his own original art gallery on his site here.
Tony Curtis’ wife, Jill, and family have a horse rescue and sanctuary in LA called Shiloh.
Tony Curtis, I will miss you greatly. Another chapter in my childhood closes. I can’t tell you how sad it is to hear the news of his passing.
My fondest thoughts, memories, and of course my prayers are with his family at this time.
