He’s Back and He’s Hot

“I’m starting to walk again, and I need just another month. All the organs are working.” It was an exuberant Tony Curtis on the phone from Chicago today as he started giving interviews again–this time in advance of the Friday-Sunday screenings-Q&As for the 1950 blockbuster “Some Like It Hot” at Ted Bulthaup’s Hollywood Blvd. Cinema in Woodridge, Il.

Curtis also told me he’d gone before the cameras recently in Santa Monica for a role in “David & Fatima,” a tender story about a Muslim girl and a Jewish boy. On Sept. 29, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, he will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award “In recognition of his Outstanding Contributions to the World of Art.” Tom Zotos makes the presentation to Curtis at a special collector’s lithograph exhibition, featuring Zotos’ tribute to Frank Sinatra. Tony Curtis continues his return to showbiz at autograph shows, the first, Oct.6-7.
