And Now Tony Curtis… (1925-2010)

I hate this week.

I don’t post every celebrity passing here, but I make it a point to call out celebrities who have been featured in one of my Projects. First Gloria Stuart, then Arthur Penn (subject of an upcoming Project), and now Antoninus himself, Tony Curtis.

Curtis had become a bit of an embarrassment to Hollywood over the last couple of decades — he famously wouldn’t watch Brokeback Mountain when it came time for his Oscar vote because it was about gay people — but nobody can doubt the legacy he leaves. Spartacus, Some Like It Hot… a classic Hollywood leading man. Sad, sad news.
