One of the greatest

Tony Curtis has died at the age of 85. Here are three moments from his long and hugely successful acting career.

Daphne and Josephine meet the band in Some Like It Hot. This has now been blocked by MGM. I shall have to find something else. It was available on the day Tony Curtis's death was announced.

The Persuaders with Roger Moore. Made in 1971 but sooooooooooo sixties.

And here he is in one of my personal favourites taking in one of the two small parts he had in Paris When It Sizzles. He was not even credited with the two parts, which he took on as a favour to the screen writer, George Axelrod, who was his friend when William Holden went on a drinking binge and held up production. Curtis stole the film quite effortlessly.
