There used to be this God-awful show on either VH1 or E (or some other channel that I no longer watch) called Hollywood Babylon (imdb.com) that was hosted by Tony Curtis. They would take scandals involving very famous people and "reenact" them with unknown actors. I distinctly remember an episode involving John Lennon in which the actor playing John Lennon looked absolutely NOTHING like John Lennon.


Anywhoo... aside from that one minor hiccup, he had a pretty amazing run.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

Met the man in 2002 when he came to GB for a production of "Some Like it Hot." I believe the role he made famous in the movie was taken by somebody else, but he still had a bit role in the play.

We sat down for an interview...and he was very picky about the lighting. I remember thinking, "Now THAT'S Old Hollywood."

Damn, there's fewer and fewer folks left around here who rubbed up against The Rat Pack.

RIP Boinie (his real name was Bernie Schwartz, so Frank always used a fake Jersey accent and called him "Boinie.")

I saw that show when it came to Pittsburgh. The funniest parts of the show that have always stuck out in my mind was when there were two seperate incidents where Tony clearly forgot his line and ad-libbed something really hilarious instead. And watching the actors around him trying their hardest not to crack up made it even funnier.
