The 24 Year Old Tony Curtis, 18 April 2002
Author: The Novelist from London, England

The 24 year old Tony Curtis began to form an alliance with Janet Leigh in this film which would take them through the 1950's. Although there was no plot to this documentary, it was the landmark for their alliance. Frankly, I thought they made a good couple.
