I just read how Tony Curtis treated his children and all the mother of his children...he was one of my favorite movie stars from that era.
Too bad
he had to die and leave us with such a sour after taste!
I always have treated my ex's with great respect and affection.
No matter how messy the break ups were, I always tried to do the right thing by them.

I agree with big bob from brooklyn, Tony Curtis is the most handsome man and also John Derek

Big Bob From BrooklynSep 2, 2007

I must say that Tony C. is the most handsome man who ever played in the movies.And John Derek came in a close second.There will never be another man to look as great as Tony Curtis!LONG LIVE TONY!!!!!
