“His greasy, ducktail hairdo, and an athletic build won him a devoted following, particularly among young fans”, says the Washington Post, going on:
“He was featured in glossy magazines, and his clothing was torn at by enthusiastic female fans whenever he made public appearances.
“An official in the studio’s fashion department made him a special suit designed to give easily whenever an admirer pulled at its buttons.”
Curtis, real name Bernie Schwartz, started his career as a matinee idol but “made his greatest contribution to comedy by dressing in drag played virtually every kind of role available in Hollywood during the 50s and 60s, from the smarmy agent Sidney Falco in The Sweet Smell of Success to Arabian prince Kashma Baba in Son of Ali Baba, one of his first starring roles”, says Cinema Blend, adding:
“He was nominated for an Oscar once, for The Defiant Ones, in which he and Sidney Poitier played a pair of criminals escaping from a chain gang while still handcuffed to one another.”
