click here For me he was the equivalent of Alec Guinness in being one of the best quality character actors of all time.

My goodness 85years old I never thought that he was that old.
A very good Actor.
He was also very well known for his hairstyle and many a barber used to say to their customers what can I do for you today.
Just give me a Tony Curtis was the ever increasing reply.
It was very popular in the 60's.

I remember him well from The Persuaders with Roger Moore. Watching him being interviewed, he always came over as a genuine person to me.

Two of his best films IMHO were "Some like it hot" with Jack Lemon and playing a convict chained to Sidney Poitier. Forgotten the name of the film. Old age you see.

Yep, The Defiant Ones, great acting great movie. He was also a very good impressionist painter in later life.

I was quite suprised listening to the news today that he never won an oscar.

but with or without an oscar he was one of the best actors of his time and may he rest in peace
