Good morning, Netizens...

If I told you an 80 year-old Hungarian-American named Bernard Schwartz had passed away of a heart attack at his home, most of you reading this would toss your hands in the air and go, “PHTT! So who is Bernard Schwartz?”

Well, it happened. Actor and once Hollywood heartthrob Tony Curtis passed away Wednesday of a heart attack. Born as Bernard Schwartz, the son of Hungarian immigrants, he spoke Hungarian as his primary language until the age of 5 and rose through the ranks of Hollywood to become an enduring American movie star.

In his own words, beautiful women and money were among the primary motivations in Curtis's life. Having been married six times, each to beautiful starlets of the time, given his humble beginnings in life Curtis achieved his goals.

Another of our American greats is gone. Rest in Peace.
