I was told that Tony Curtis had died yesterday while doing "current headlines" in class today. Everyone had blank looks on their faces (I found it very depressing that no one knew who he was), and I said "NOOOO!" really loud. I am very upset, and I feel very sad that one of my only favourite "still alive" classic movie stars is now no more.
|Tony Curtis 3rd June 1925 - 29th September 2010|
Most people will remember him like this.
|Looking gorgeous in Spartacus|
But I will remember him like this.
The results from my latest poll to decide between the sisters of the silver screen (Joan Fontaine and Olivia De Havilland) and the winner is....
|He's the guy (dressed up as a dame) in the white fur collar|
|Playing the saxophone whilst Jack Lemmon plays his bass with machine gun holes in. They were really chased by gangsters after being the two witnesses to the Chicago St. Valentines Day massacre 1929, but when asked by the band leader where they came from he says "Umm, i don't know... Mice?" So as not to blow their cover so that they can get as far away as possible from the gangster, Spats Columbo (George Raft).|
OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND
She won 4 votes to 2. I found it hard to choose between the two, but I do love Olivia just that little bit more.
