Curtis passed away earlier this morning of an apparent heart attack. He was 85 years old.

One of Hollywood's pretty boys in his youth, he was from the Bronx New York. He starred in a series of movies including Spartacus and Some Like It Hot, which is one of his best known roles. Nominated for his role in The Defiant Ones, his drug and alcohol use later in life robbed him of some of his best years, though he did appear in the TV series The Persuaders; but in the last few decades he had got his life back together and was a successful painter. He was married several times, including to Janet Leigh. They had one daughter actress Jamie Lee Curtis.
