Tony Curtis will not be attending the 65th anniversary tribute program Dec.7 at Pearl Harbor as originally planned. (Curtis was a Signalman 3rd Class aboard the submarine tender Proteus in Tokyo Bay when the peace treaty was signed aboard the U.S.S. Missouri).

Tom Brokaw will be keynote speaker at the event where over 1500 Pearl Harbor survivors are expected to attend. However, Curtis says he will be on hand March 14, 2007 aboard the Missouri in Pearl Harbor for a fundraising program for the Arizona memorial.

On Sunday, Dec.3, Curtis (“Some Like It Hot”) will participate in the program launching the Billy Wilder Theater in the Hammer Museum in Westwood. 

Meanwhile — departing Hollywood — a private jet arrives in Owensboro, Ky., Sunday, Dec.3, with a planeload to celebrate and participate in the dedication of the Jodi Berry Theater in the RiverPark complex.

Owensboro-born Berry died Jan.18,2005. His philanthropist-widow Joni who supports several charities in L.A., will donate a million $ to establish the theater in Jodi’s name.

Among those winging in — and who will entertain at a gala Sunday night on those boards are: Mitzi Gaynor, Jack Carter and Norm Crosby, with John Byner driving in from Florida. Veteran Broadway producer Zev Bufman has moved from L.A. to head the RiverPark complex.

And in town — Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Entertainment Services and Camille and Kelsey Grammer will be honored Saturday, Dec.2 at the BevHilton by the Help Group at their 10th annual Teddy Bear Ball.

Daniels receives the Help Humanitarian Award and the Grammers receive the Champion for Children award. Sarah Taylor leads 60 students from the Help Group Children’s Choir. The Help Group  serves children with special needs related to autism, Asperger’s Disorder, learning disabilities, ADHD, mental retardation, abuse and emotional problems.
