Comments on the movies for the Tony Curtis tribute today 10/10/2010


Recommended Posts

I just finished watching the first movie of Tony Curtis's tribute today "BeachHead" it was a good war

film i felt on the edge of my seat a few times. Throughout the film you couldn't miss a young handsome

Tony Curtis. Frank Lovejoy was good along side tony through the film. What are your thoughts on

the film :Beachhead?... Will now watch "Kings Go Forth" will blog right after. Hope everyone will too.

I think Tony would just love today. Everyone enjoy with favorite drink toast to tony! and don't forget

the buttered popcorn yummy!... He would want us to do just that...thanks Tony for the many years of

cinema entertainment. BTW i never saw the film "BeachHead" before until today.

I never saw that either, and I liked it! I had to keep watching after getting up early to catch GRAND HOTEL! :) I lost track of KINGS GO FORTH though...not sure I'll be able to stick with the entire tribute, but I'm glad to see that Tony is being honored!

I just finished watching "Kings Go Forth" all i can say is "Wow" This is the first time i've seen this movie.

it had all the elements needed for a good film. Romance, conflict, tension right up to the end of the movie, and if that isn't enough prejudice was included in the mix of this film. Tony played an excellent

playboy soldier in a french foreign town seeking and seducing the very pretty girl Natalie Wood.

Tony played a mean trumpet in this film. a must see film if you miss itm today.

I've been doing housework and trying to watch this movie so I've missed half of it bummer because I haven't seen it before. Looking forward to Sweet Smell of Success so glad they gave it the eight o'clock time line it really showed his talent against Burt and thats hard to do I love him also. All the bad press he had back in the day, but whenever I saw him talking on TV he always had a smile and a laugh so I would guess he loved his life and was very humble about all his success.

Just another Sunday that TCM made great by showing a tribute to the late Mr. Tony Curtis.

Just one question...Why is "Spartacus" and "Some Like It Hot" not on todays schedule? I mean

some were good some were great but to not show the ones in which I thought he was most known for is like having cake without the icing.

I watched the movie The Vikings but i would much prefer the movie Sparticus. Tony really gets

burned in this movie OUCH!!!!! Kirk Douglas was great as was Janet Leigh but i don't think

this was one of tony's great acting moments.

operation petticoat was just on loved the zedany comedy Tony was in a scenes with a pig i wonder how many shots it took with the animal whew! i bet tony had stories to tell about that day on the set!!!!!!

Tony said many times in interviews he loved doing this movie with his idol Cary Grant. It shows

how much he enjoyed doing this film.

I just finished watching The Sweet Smell of Sucess & The defiant ones they get better every time i watch

them. Now the movie Trapeze just started such a wonderful triple feature to enjoy tonite. I have never seen

this movie yet in color just in my childhood in black -n-white. These movies in my opinion are Tony's

finest. Also thanks to Burt Lancaster for tony's parts in these movies. I'm imagining Burt & Tony

are having a goodtime reminiscing right now over a good beer!....

The movie The Great Race is about to start love jack Lemmon & Tony curtis in this film. This film

reminds me of a great scavenger hunt with a lot of belly laughs and a great cast Tony Curtis

does comedy so well in this film....enjoy! Let The Race Begin Start Your Engines one and all...

the last movie of Tony Curtis 's 24 hour tribute is the movie "Don't Make Waves" with the late

Sharon Tate i think its her major film debut, made in 1967. Tony Curtis is great with his

physical comedy in this film. I think this film is trying to reach the younger generation of its time.

At the end of the movie a whole house collapses on Malibu beach! You got to see this film.
