This 1999 "Private Screenings" is a great way to spend an hour in between watching Tony Curtis films on TCM (Turner Classic Movies). Mostly, Mr. Curtis seems to have an honest perceptive about his image, career, and personal life. He speaks of co-stars with candor; while he doesn't always paint the most positive picture of the people and events in his life, he never appears bitter or hateful. Some mild "negative" reflections about co-workers sound authentic because Curtis doesn't seem angry or vengeful, just "matter-of-fact". And, Curtis is very frequently generous when discussing his co-workers.

Host Bob Osborne keeps the discussion on track; he knows when to move Curtis on to discuss the next film, and when to let him go. Curtis makes this a very easy interview for Mr. Osborne. The Bronx-born Bernie Schwartz names his favorite roles are "The Boston Strangler", "Trapeze", and "The Sweet Smell of Success". He shares great memories of these, and classics like "The Defiant Ones", "Some Like it Hot", and "Spartacus". Nothing in the interview hits you over the head with demands that Curtis be reevaluated as a much better actor than he was given credit for; but, he appears elevated.
