tony curtis, i tip my hat to you

Oh Tony Curtis, I tip my hat to you.

You had a career spanning sixty decades, and in my heart of hearts you will always be wearing high heels and chasing after Marilyn Monroe. Whether you were on the run with Sidney Poitier (running from a chain gang to an Oscar nom!), or in the bath with Laurence Olivier, or doing your best ‘Cary Grant,’ those eyes and that chin made a lot of wives swoon, including six of your own.

Tony Curtis, I salute you.
