POLL: Happy Birthday Tony Curtis! Favorite Performance?

Tony Curtis 1958

The incomparable Tony Curtis was born on June 3, 1925. He has been a legend of the silver screen since the early 1950s, giving us performances that both tickled our funny bones and tugged at the dramatic heartstrings. He also was married to legendary actress Janet Leigh, and their relationship, in turn, produced a legendary actress herself in daughter Jamie Lee Curtis.

Curtis was most well known for his comedic timing in films like “Some Like It Hot,” but he also had the range to give dramatic, tense performances like his Academy Award nominated turn in “The Defiant Ones.” Regardless, he was an actor that had a vibrant personality and memorable screen presence.

Thus, we feel it is only necessary to ask the readership of the site what their favorite Tony Curtis performance is. Answer in the poll below, and if none of the options is your pick, comment below!
