Tony Curtis dies at 85
While Curtis had a long and storied career with such films as The Sweet Smell of Success, Spartacus, Operation Petticoat, The Great Race, The Defiant Ones, and Some LIke It Hot; he is most beloved by magic fans for his starring role in Paramount’s 1953 classic HOUDINI alongside then real-life wife Janet Leigh.
Curtis recently hosted screenings of HOUDINI at the Million Dollar Theater in Los Angeles and at The Magic Castle (click here for my report on that memorable evening).
For a look back at his amazing life and career read the full report on his passing at NPR.
RIP Mr. Curtis, the greatest Houdini!
