Documentary/ France/ 96 minutes/ 2011  
Directed by Ian Ayres

2012 marks the 100th anniversary of both Universal and Paramount Studios, and LAJFF joins in the celebration of Hollywood and its history with an homage to its illustrious icons.

Discussion to precede film with Hollywood celebrities Mamie Van Doren, Theresa Russell, Sally Kellerman, Marian Collier, Max Roeg, John Gilmore, Jill Curtis, and others, moderated by film critic Pete Hammond, formerly of Entertainment Tonight.

A personal and intimate journey into the life and career of one of Hollywoods last silver screen icons. Influencing the likes of Elvis Presley and James Dean with his rebellious demeanor, iconic hairstyle and good looks, Tony Curtis was regarded as one of the very first teen idols and sex symbols of his time. His passionate drive and charm made him a unique figure that appealed to all ages with memorable roles in such classics as Spartacus, Sweet Smell of Success and Some Like It Hot. In this documentary, Tony Curtis gives an honest and compelling interview, delivering an unprecedented insight into the highs and lows of being a movie star. From his difficult upbringing in the Bronx, he escaped the burden of being born Bernie Schwartz and reinvented himself in Hollywood as Tony Curtis.
