The Young Juggler
“Some Like It Hot” came out in 1959, and “Spartacus” in 1960. At the pinnacle of his career, Tony Curtis starred in a telefilm that he coproduced. Though not on a par with either film just mentioned, this 51-minute television segment offers an unusual take on the juggler story to show off Curtis’s looks and talents. It makes the original character into a lady’s man who when pursued by vengeful cuckolds betrays his best friend. Since airing on March 29, 1960, the film has not been screened. Come and enjoy time travel back nearly sixty years—and perhaps a few laughs, both intended and not so.
