Showbiz is definitely in the family. Besides Tony Curtis being a legend in the biz, his lovely wife Janet Leigh, from The Movie Psycho Fame, was also a Legend in Hollywood. And of course Tony's daughter Jamie Lee Curtis, has established herself as an Hollywood Icon, definitely following in her Father's footsteps. So Hollywood is just in the Curtis's genes plain and simple. Who knows what the future will hold for future generations of the Curtis Family Blood line, Hollywood, TV, politics, You never know.
On Friday September 21, Saturday September 22, and Sunday September 2007, Mr. Curtis was in Our very own neck of the woods. He was on a very special promotional tour and was able to stop for Three at Hollywood Blvd. Movie Theater in My hometown of Woodridge, Illinois. Hollywood Boulevard had a night with Tony Curtis. Which included a special showing of His Film from 1959, "Some like it Hot", also Mr. Curtis as well as Jack Lennon and Marylyn Monroe. The Movie features both Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon as two musicians dressed up as women, so join an all girl-band playing in Florida, in order to hide out after witnessing a terrible shooting between Chicago mobsters.
Mr. Curtis was able to take questions from the audience and was actually taking questions in one of the two Theater showing the film. He was in one Theater and there was closed circuit television in the other Theater. So there was Q & A first, an evening with Tony Curtis, then the film was shown.
Also during the three days was a special art exhibit of Mr. Curtis artwork. Mr. Curtis is also a skilled and talented painter as well as actor.
