Star Wars

Okay this is from JibJab - and I can't find how to embed it - so if you want to see my family as Star Wars - you have to go to this site!

It's a little silly -

I'm getting ready for Los Angeles this weekend! teehee



Happy Birthday Tony Curtis - Wikipedia

Curtis was born Bernard Schwartz in the Bronx, New York, the son of Emanuel Schwartz and his wife Helen Klein. His parents were Jewish immigrants from Mátészalka, Hungary. His father was a tailor and the family lived in the back of the shop—the parents in one corner and Curtis and his brothers Julius and Robert in another.

His mother had once made an appearance as a participant on the television show You Bet Your Life, hosted by Groucho Marx. Curtis has said, "When I was a child Mom beat me up and was very aggressive and antagonistic." His mother was later diagnosed with schizophrenia, a mental illness which also affected his brother Robert and led to his institutionalization.

When Curtis was eight, he and his younger brother Julius were placed in an orphanage for a month because their parents could not afford to feed them. Four years later, Julius was struck and killed by a truck.

Interesting beginnings . . .
