    I remember his "I Quit" (IQ) anti-smoking campaign of the 1970s. He became fodder for Johnny Carson's monologues when he was arrested for marijuana at an airport (maybe London).

    Some Like It Hot was truly a comedy classic. Wasn't he in Spartacus?

    Yep. RIP Tony. One of my favorite films of his was Operation Petticoat with Carey Grant.

    Loved watching Tony Curtis movies.

    "Houdini" was another good one.

    Excellent actor, and a good person in general. He and his wife have saved a lot of lives through their horse rescue and rehab ranch Shiloh.

    Ira Hayes, among many, many other roles. I think I watched a movie with him in it at least twice every week during my formative years. An absolute favorite.
