Default Tony Curtis

I'm sure you have all heard by now that one of Hollywood's stars of the 50s, 60s & 70s, Tony Curtis has died following a heart attack.

He was a bit of a playboy in his time (lucky lad), who sure liked the fair sex.

There was a quote of his that was posted in one of today's papers which best typifies his off screen "activities." It went something like this:

"I always make it a point not to go out with a woman that is old enough to be my wife."

I'm a HUGE Marilyn Monroe fan myself also....she couldn't act to save her life, but with a body like that...WHO REALLY CARES

Tony Curtis did not think much of the screen godess however, once famously described kissing her "was like kissing Hitler".

(mind you, how would he have known what kissing Hitler was like . The picture that that thought conjures up in my mind is surreal, to say the least.)
