Tony Curtis remembered fondly by friends, family and colleagues

Tony Curtis passed away a couple of days ago – he was one of the true legends of acting.  He did everything from comedy to drama roles, appearing in more than a hundred films over the span of a career that lasted more than six decades.  In the past two days, his former co-stars, friends, and family have come forward with their memories, and it seems like the guy was universally loved by everyone who knew him.  Not that I expect people to come forward and hate on the dead guy, but sometimes when unpopular people pass, everyone remains politely quiet.  Not the case with Tony Curtis – his daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis, made a public statement talking about the extended family that loved him, and fellow actors Kirk Douglas and Kim Novak have both issued statements declaring their sadness at their friend’s passing.  It’s sad that he’s gone, but it’s also great that he made such a positive impact on so many people.
