Tony Curtis



I enjoyed many of his films and this particular TV show with Roger Moore was a favorite. R.I.P.

RIP Tony Curtis.

I have vague memories of this show, but I do recall that I liked it.

David Cranmer said...

A very tongue-in-cheek romp. Lots of fun.

Randy Johnson said...

Yes, this show was a favorite of mine as well. Somewhere in the house I have a couple of tie-in novels based on the show.

Ron Scheer said...

The best Tony Curtis movie for me will always be SOME LIKE IT HOT.

Oscar said...

Our ship had a part in one of his movies in the early '50's, "Forever Yours" or something like that.They did all the filming at night and paraded through the compartment where we were trying to sleep. He was a personable gent.

Evan Lewis said...

Must agree with Ron. I'll remember him for Some Like it Hot.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

This looks like something I'd like.

Tony Curtis definitely had flair.

David Cranmer said...

Randy, I wonder who wrote the tie-in novels for The Persuaders?

Ron, Funny, funny film. Another great role was in The Defiant Ones.

Oscar, Thanks for sharing that story. It is always nice to know when one of these actors has the affable touch.

Evan, One of the best. The final line with Jack Lemmon and Joe . Brown is arguably one of the funniest in film history.

Alyssa, He certainly did.

Frederick E. Smith wrote them:

The Persuaders
Five Miles To Midnight

They were adaptations of episodes. To be honest, I'm not sure I still have them(having had to cull the collection a couple of times). Small house and a couple of moves over the years has most of the older stuff packed into boxes(I have one whole room devoted to storing them).

In doing a little more research, there was apparently a third book, likely not published over here as it is fairly high. Different titles as well. Some list the first as the show name, others The Heart Shaped Birthmark.

I heard about this last night. I liked him.

Reb said...

I don't seem to recall this show, but it looks like it would have been fun. RIP

David Cranmer said...

Randy, I've made notes of these titles and may look for them when I return. Thanks.

Charles, I see where Jamie Lee had a very nice statement.

Reb, Kinda sorta on par with It Takes A Thief. Light as a feather and easy on the eyes.
