Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has announced that it will televise a 24-hour Tony Curtis marathon Sunday, Oct. 10, as a tribute to the star, who died Wednesday at 85.

Additionally, the network will post an audio podcast on its Web site beginning Friday that will feature a 1999 interview Curtis did for TCM with network host Robert Osborne.

  1. The should of added Boeing, Boeing, he did with Jerry Lewis

  2. They should HAVE added….

  3. Lisa probably just had a mental spasm. She meant to write “should’ve” which sounds a lot like what she wrote.

  4. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  5. Thank God we have a common interest, thank you for sharing, you’re a good author. Hope to see more of your articles. Juno sincere.
