Happy Birthday: Tony Curtis!

I've met the man once and I've listened to him speak twice. Some Like it Hot is my favorite Wilder movie and I love watching it and hearing anything about it. Tony is always kind to his fans, from what I have seen. He loves to tell stories! Happy 85th birthday, Tony!

Oh, Daphne! Don't wake Josephine!


Tony and Janet Leigh with Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner.

Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis in The Defiant Ones (1958), fantastic movie.

Tony today, but usually he's wearing a cowboy hat.

Fab! When did you meet him?

I met him in 2007 when he was at a theater. It's a great story actually. I met him in the hallway just as he was finishing up his Q&A session. He called me a honey and said he wanted his picture taken with me! It was hilarious.

What a nice page of photos you did of him in tribute to his birthday. I also met him in April 2009 at a sci fi convention and my meeting with him was wonderful. He was so sweet and funny and made me get all teary eyed. He really does make it personal and it was touching. He is my favorite male movie star since childhood so IM so thankful I met him. I had my picture taken with him and I think he was the one who said better get a 2nd shot just in case. What a thoughtful man he was.

He was thoughtful! I miss him already.
