June 3, 1925 – September 30, 2010

Just heard via Twitter that Tony Curtis has died at the age of 85. I think that the first time that I ever saw a movie with Tony in it would have either been

Some Like It Hot

or The Great Race

on TV, both movies that I loved as a kid and still like now. When I grew older I watched other movies such as…

Spartacus

The Defiant Ones with Sidney Poitier.

I wonder how many stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood are still with us. Jerry Lewis, Mickey Rooney, Lauren Bacall, Kirk Douglas… not too many others.
Douglas… not too many others.
