RIP: Tony Curtis

Reading time: < 1 minute...


Ahh, that’s sad – Tony Curtis died today, at the fine age of 85. Although the media tended to show mostly photographs and movie-clips of him with Jack Lemmon in Some Like it Hot, I mostly remember him in The Persuaders TV series, shown in the 70s, where he played millionaire playboy Danny Wilde.

I thought he and Roger and Moore made a fine double-act and who could forget that theme tune by the legendary John Barry? (If you have, you can listen to it here).

I can clearly remember, Mum, Dad, Neil and I sitting round the TV (on a Sunday, I think) watching the series. We loved it!!!
