For more than 40 years, actor Tony Curtis appeared on stage, screen, and on TV. When I interviewed him for my “About the Books” podcast on March 8, 2009, I did not realize I would be recording a last bit of his history. Curtis, who died on September 29, 2010, talked candidly about his love life and his career, his life on a Nevada ranch with his wife, Jill Curtis. In a poignant note, he recalled his relationship with Marilyn Monroe, with whom he co-starred in Some Like It Hot.
TONY CURTIS audio excerpt: “Marlon Brando would take little turns in a moment of speech. As he said one line, it was if he hated you. As he said the next line, he charmed you. I, on the other hand, was a lot more pedantic.”
