Tony Curtis and 3rd wife Leslie ALLEN (1968-1982) with Iranian Journalists at Tehran's Hotel Sheraton for a Press Call during the Tehran International Film Festival. (circa 1974).

The Persuaders ( better known as" Kavoshgaran" amongst Iranians) Starring Tony Curtis and Roger Moore was a cult series in Iran during the 70's. Few Americans have heard of these series. It was a hit worldwide but deemed too European for the American TV Viewers

Thank you for your great blog.

I love the cinema and am very curious about those men and women who with their special talents bring a story to life, in full color.  

Tony Curtis has made many films but the one film that I remember him most in is Some Like it Hot, and also the TV serial The Persuaders. 

I was very lucky to have met him many times, as I did Fred Astraire and George Peppard and some other lesser known artists.  These meetings had only one reason:  we all shared the same post office. :-)
