1957: Full slate for Curtis

April 2, 1957:

GOOD MORNING: Tony Curtis, who has co-starred with Burt Lancaster in “Sweet Smell of Success,” next with Kirk Douglas in “The Vikings,” follows as Frank Sinatra’s marquee partner in “Kings Go Forth”… “Sweet Smell,” by the way, goes back before the cameras once again next week in the hopes a NEW finale will be satisfactory! … Pat O’Brien returns to B’way this fall for “Casual Miracle,” his first trip back in 25 years. He plays — a managing editor … Dean Martin does a May 23 one-nighter in Florida for — Schenley dealers … And in June, Martin does a six-show stand at Pittsburgh’s Town and Coach for $25,000! “And I don’t even have to deal,” says he … Milton Berle’s supposed to follow Martin into Frank Sennes’ Moulin Rouge … Metro’s 24-sheets on “Silk Stockings” feature blow-up of Cyd Charisse’s gams in nylons … June Allyson and Dick Powell back together at the Gary Coopers’ big shindig where Sen. John Kennedy (who used to date Hollywood’s lovelies) was the center of attraction … (2007 update: Tony Curtis, whose career continued zooming with “Some Like It Hot” and reteamed with Kirk Douglas in “Spartacus,” now happily reports he’s come to the end of his post-surgical, physical therapy and pneumonia problems and is fully up — and about. He says wife Jilly “has given me a new lease on life” — and they now go out to dinners in Las Vegas. As proof of his full recovery, Tony tells me, “Im trying to find an agent.” He will be 82, June 3.)
