R.I.P. Antoninus, Sidney Falco, et al

Apropos of yesterday's post about out of print favorites, I read that the late, great Tony Curtis was buried today with a number of prized possessions, among them his copy of the novel Anthony Adverse, by Hervey Allen. What's Anthony Adverse you ask? I have no idea. It turns out it's been out of print for a really, really long time. It's also the novel from which Bronx-born Bernard Schwartz got his stage name of Tony Curtis, and it was made into a 1936 film with Fredric March and Olivia da Havilland. Now I am super curious. I have to get my hands on a copy now!
