Film Great Tony Curtis Passed Away on 09/29/10. R.I.P.

This is a sad day not only did we lose a great actor but also a great person. I had the pleasure of talking with Tony on the phone a while back and we were working out the details of getting together when my wife and I make a trip to Las Vegas after Christmas this year. I was hoping he would be able to make it to our vow renewal ceremony. But this is not to be but I will always treasure that phone conversation with Tony and I wish the family well and I know it's going to be very difficult times.

I met Tony Curtis in Las Vegas around 1990 when he was promoting some schlocky exploitation picture at the VSDA convention. He had these steel blue eyes that were somewhat bloodshot as I recall. When I told him it was inconceivable to me that he did not win the Academy Award in 1957 for "Sweet Smell of Success", he looked me straight in the eye, stilled resentful after more than 30 years "I wasn't even nominated!"
