"Tony Curtis: Driven to Stardom” explores the man’s rebellious demeanor, his struggle as a Jew in Hollywood, his difficult childhood, the brief love affair with Marilyn Monroe and his failed marriages to actresses Janet Leigh and Christine Kaufman, his courageous stance to break the color barrier with The Defiant Ones (the film that earned him an Oscar Nomination), and his entire six-decade career.
A sex symbol, a matinee idol, a powerful and magnetic actor, Tony Curtis was the original movie star.
