Tony Curtis -

Tony Curtis was an incredibly popular screen idol. Blessed with great looks and an athletic grace, Curtis had millions of avid fans around the world.

His defining role would be in OPERATION PETTICOAT as the fast talking con man. Other notable roles include: THE DEFIANT ONES, THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS, SOME LIKE IT HOT, and THE GREAT RACE.

Curtis' combination of impossible good looks, athletic style and New York accent proved irresistible, particularly with the ladies. In later life, Tony Curtis sported a white wig that was as unlikely as it was amusing, and worked perfectly in keeping with his "star" status.

Tony Curtis was married to actress Janet Leigh, and their divorce caused quite a stir in Hollywood. Tony's daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis (TRUE LIES) became a popular star in her own right.
