At the height of Hollywood's Golden Age, Tony Curtis starred in "Houdini" and "Spartacus", made comedy history with Jack Lemmon in the unforgettable "Some Like It Hot", was friends with Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant and James Dean, and romanced screen sirens such as Marilyn Monroe, Janet Leigh and Natalie Wood. He lived a life he could only dream of growing up in the Bronx. Born Bernard Schwarz to immigrant parents, this is Tony Curtis' story of his hard-knock childhood, his wild days as a Hollywood playboy, his destructive drug addiction and his life now as an artist at eighty years old. Sparing no name, no detail and no ego, Tony Curtis talks intimately about the people he has known during his long, illustrious career, his co-stars, the studio owners, his wives, his lovers and his friends. It is this book, he says, that will be the true record of his life. In "American Prince", Tony tells the amazing story of his life, with humour, grace and honesty.
