Tony Curtis RIP

Tony Curtis, who died on September 29 aged 85, was one of Hollywood's last matinee idols; the product of a classic success story, he rose from a New York ghetto to enjoy fame and stardom that was largely unparalleled for much of the 1950s and 1960s. At the height of that fame Billy Wilder, who directed Curtis in his greatest hit, Some Like it Hot, noted that the actor's "only interests were the size of his billing and the tightness of his trousers".
