Tony Curtis at Disneyland

Tony Curtis stands at the entrance of Disneyland during the May 1962 filming of "40 Pounds of Trouble." Two years later, this same sign that promoted "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" was still standing in the same place. In 1964, a TV show broadcast in color was a big deal.

A pensive shot of Curtis with the Mark Twain in the background.

The sign was still there, but the drinking fountain disappeared!

I guess I am under-exposed to film, since this guy is a blank to me, but the pictures are fun.

Thank you Dave.

JG - Surely you have seen "Some Like It Hot" with Marilyn Monroe?!?

Great photos. I wonder if Tony had any fun at Disneyland?

I have seen that movie, but the actor(s) is a blank to me still. I guess I was watching the girl.

My nearest claim to any of this old Hollywood is being involved once-upon-a-time in the re-design of a home on the same cul-de-sac in Brentwood as the house where Marilyn met her sad end.

At the pace of remodeling in that neighborhood, my work is doubtlessly all erased now.
