Tony Curtis went to his grave packing an iPhone yesterday, his family have revealed. The veteran film star who famously said "I'm Spartacus" and likened snogging Marilyn Monroe to "kissing Hitler" was honoured at a public funeral service in Las Vegas yesterday. The 400-strong crowd at the funeral service thinned out to 200 …
Kind of sad people have to take so much worldly junk with them, but since it is America, death is a special event and worth billions annually to the burial biz. You can even find funeral directors / parlours on Twitter and Facebook.
Just as well burial plots (holes) have to be lined with a special leak proof container so the poisonous materials in his Lemon don't pollute the ground.
Boing-Boing has an interesting article on an usual aspect of American burials: < http://boingboing.net/2010/07/02/new-york-times-and-o.html >.
Still Tony Curtis had a good run with many memorable credits to his name, he really outlived (longevity) many of his well known co-stars. who included Frank Sinatra, Natalie Wood and Jack Lemon, Marilyn Monroe and Janet Leigh - who Register uses as an headline icon.
in North America.
Into the empty grave is placed a large cast metal container, sans top. Into this is placed the coffin, Following the rituals, and after the guests have gone, the graveyard workers place the top on the base.
The joint has a watertight seal, and clamps/screws, that keeps water out and the embalming fluids in.
The the whole lot is covered by dirt.
This means even an iPhone 3 couldn't make the calls, nor the Army's old C11 set. < http://freespace.virgin.net/mark.roper/wsr210c11.jpg >
Dry up already. Tony Curtis was a true star, and had quite a warped sense of humour. The only reason that people have to make off-colour jokes at his expense is that he's not around to do it himself'.
Listen to the archive interview with him on R4's "Front Row", and you'll see what I mean.
The comment you report about his likening kissing Munroe to kissing Hitler is at odds with an NPR tape of him run on Friday in which he was speaking very fondly of Norma Jean and defending her acting chops in the most gallant terms in an interview held about five years ago.
The guy was a halfway decent actor who loved young women and had the money to support that habit. Why all this vitriol is being spilled at his passing when his lifestyle was much what any bloke would aspire to is beyond me. Who gives a toss what he had thrown in the coffin with him FFS?
For some years I've been a user and something of an enthusiast for a log-scraping utility in Unix/Linux called "wots" which happens to have been written by an Austrian student w/ the unlikely name of "Tony Curtis".
It was something of a joke around the various places I've worked the last 10 years or so and you'd be surprised how many condolences I received via email when the wots author's more famous namesake passed.
I mention it lest someone whip out the dreaded "IT?" icon. RIP Mr. Curtis.
