R.I.P. Tony Curtis. Loved him in "Some Lke It Hot" and "Houdini." And of course one of his most memorable roles was on The Flintstones as Stony Curtis.

Tony Curtis was a good actor. RIP-he was a Brooklyn native. His starring role in The Boston Strangler was brilliant and vivid.

Bronx native. He was amazingly talented and beautiful.
