The Show is UP: Tony Curtis Revealed, Part 2

OK, this is a longer episode than usual, but it'll have to tide y'all over because we'll be busy working on Election Night next week when we'd normally be in the studio recording. So enjoy! More good stuff in here about the Rat Pack, Jamie Lee Curtis, who was and wasn't gay in Hollywood, stars Tony loved and hated and more. Click on the date to hear it or right-click to download the show and listen whenever you want. Or subscribe via iTunes here or via Zune here.

Oct. 30: Tony Curtis, Part II

If you thought Tony Curtis’ remarks on last week’s show were something, just wait till you hear the rest of it. The actor, out with a sex-soaked memoir of his career and life, offers some tough words this hour for a long list of Hollywood figures including Jerry Lewis, Angela Lansbury, Danny Kaye, Neil Simon and more. Then, later, he discusses his own mental health issues, his views of old and new Vegas and tries to explain why he’s so disappointed by his film career.

In Banter: Is Criss No. 1, Paris is for shopping and what really ails Las Vegas Sands?

Who knew it could get worse than being proud of semen dripping down your leg? What a bitter, sad old man who seems to spend all his time worrying about what he doesn't have rather than being thankful for the things he does have.

On reflecting a bit further I have to say you do a bang up job of reminding me that what we see on our film and TV screens is not even close to reality and that it is always important to keep an open mind. If you'd asked me beforehand to pick from Tony Curtis or Jerry Springer to have dinner with I'd have slected Curtis. The only thing I knew about Springer before your interview was his train-wreck of a talk show because we don't see him on anything else here in Australia. Who knew that Springer would turn out to be an intelligent, well-adjuted and interesting bloke while Curtis would be bitter, rude and someone to pity (and not someone I'd have any interest at all in having dinner with)?
