Tony Curtis with his 1934 Rolls-Royce, shot by Ralph Crane.

Tony Curtis (1925- 2010),one of my favorite American actors, star of Sweet Smell of Success (1957) and Some Like it Hot (1959) among other masterpieces. Curtis lived on a grand scale over the years. He bought an 18-room Hollywood villa in 1966 with four acres and a garage that sheltered the actor’s new Lincoln Continental, a 1934 Rolls-Royce, 1937 Bentley, and 1935 Duesenberg, among his other cars.

He acquired this Rolls Royce Drophead Convertible in 1959. Here are these photos of him in 1961, shot by Ralph Crane for LIFE magazine.
