Tony Curtis, the Hollywood icon who starred in The Defiant Ones, Spartacus, Some Like It Hot and The Sweet Smell of Success died Sept. 29 in his Henderson home at 85.
His funeral Oct. 4 at the Palm Mortuary drew a reported 400 people, including his daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Goulet’s widow, Vera, MGM honcho Kirk Kerkorian and porn star Ron Jeremy.
Well, he did have a reputation as a ladies’ man.
Schwarzenegger eulogized away, talking about the nude pictorial Curtis did for Vanity Fair at age 80. Normally, you’d expect something a little more tasteful and restrained from the man who made The Last Action Hero.
