ACTOR TONY CURTIS WHO DIED SEPTEMBER 29, 2010 ACCOMPLISHED PAINTER - Broadway To Vegas column - September 14, 1998

http://www.broadwaytovegas.com/September14,1998.html


He death (on September 29, 2010 in Las Vegas) should not have come as a surprise. What surprised me is his ability as an artist.
So talented. He needs to be remember for his art, not just his acting.

ELLIS ISLAND BOB HOPE LIBRARY DEDICATION - Broadway To Vegas column - September 26, 2010

http://www.broadwaytovegas.com/September26,2010.html

Nobody has ever done more for the USO than Bob Hope. After he became too old to do his visits and television specials other performers could have taken up the cause, taped their visits and had a TV special, at least at Christmas time, like Mr.Hope did. A "reality" show on how a USO tour is put together with any stars they'd care to have picked; Connie Stevens, Jay Leno, Billy Crystal, David Letterman, Trace Adkins, Lady GaGa, Madonna, Cher, Katy Perry and those cheerleaders would have been interesting. Did anybody care enough to even try for a television special?
Thanks
Just call me An Old Vet who will always remember seeing Mr. Hope in person perform during Vietnam.

If the Liberace Museum says one of the reasons they are forced to close down is because the Liberace Museum is away from the strip, then what about Wayne Newton? His place is even farther off the beaten path.
