Tony Curtis RIP

Movie great Tony Curtis has died. He was 85.

I had the great pleasure of spending most of an Academy Awards after party hanging at a Beverly Hills Hotel bar with Curtis. He was probably 80 that year, but was full of life, told great stories and could still put down more than a couple of drinks.

That night he wore his Ordre des Arts et des Lettres  medal that he received from France in 1995 and was clearly very proud of it.
