Story 183
Tony Curtis - When working for the airlines as a purser, on a flight from Honolulu to L.A., I was told prior to boarding that Tony Curtis was in first class. Coincidentally, my mother was also onboard, flying in coach. Up until just before the door closed, the seat next to Mr. Curtis was unoccupied. (I'm sure you know what I was thinking here!). Alas, a gentleman came lumbering up the jetway and sure enough he was that final 1st class passenger. After we were airborne, I spoke to Mr. Curtis and said "I would normally never ask this, but my mother is in coach and it would mean the world to her if she could come up and meet you." Although I was anticipating a negative response, he was more than gracious and said, "By all means." When my mother met Tony, she was like a star-gazing teen all over again, asking questions about his life and career, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemon, etc. He simply went out of his way with politeness. That meant the world to her and I will never forget the look on her face. It was priceless.
