SéanceTime: Actor Tony Curtis laid to rest with his Apple iPhone

“Actor Tony Curtis was buried Monday with a melange of his favorite possessions — a Stetson hat, an Armani scarf, driving gloves, an iPhone and a copy of his favorite novel, ‘Anthony Adverse,’ a book that inspired his celebrity name and launched a robust film career that spanned decades and genres,” Oskar Garcia reports for The Associated Press.

“The 85-year-old Oscar-nominated actor who starred in such films as ‘The Defiant Ones’ and ‘Some Like It Hot’ died Wednesday at his home in Henderson, a Las Vegas suburb, after suffering cardiac arrest,” Garcia reports. “More than 400 celebrities, fans, friends and family members gathered to say goodbye at a public funeral service Monday in Las Vegas honoring Curtis’ life.”

Garcia reports, “The funeral was to be followed by the burial and then a reception for 200 invited guests at the Luxor hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.”

  1. Did they upgrade him to iPhone 4 with FaceTime? What a remarkable career and life he had. A true talent now belongs to the ages.

    Tony, if you have free WiFi all over, you know you are in Heaven… If you’re handed an AT&T data bill, well…. but we know you’re getting the free wifi!

  3. Tony’s “Cary Grant” delivery in “Some Like It Hot” is priceless. I too see TC’s face when I think of Houdini. Just like I see Burt Lancaster when thinking of Jim Thorpe. Rest in Peace.

    PS- Crass place for plug, Bing. Shove it up your ass.

  5. Tony Curtis added a lot of pleasure to my life with every movie I saw him in. You could count on him to pick the right material and deliver a great perfromance. I am thankful for that.

    May he rest in peace.
