Although the tall and lanky stature of Tony Curtis made us believe that he could look like a College Football player in his youth, the last few years of Tony Curtis while alive showed us anything but a former football player. That’s beside the point really as in 1953, Cutis starred as Nick Bonelli a star college football player who becomes disillusioned when his coach withheld the information that his parents were killed in a car crash on the way to the stadium. Disillusioned, he transfers to Sheridan College and of course learns about life, conformity, and dare we say domestic abuse. Frankly, in regards to Curtis and fictional athletic performances, we far preferred him as Marvin Lazar in the Bad News Bears Go to Japan, but those are our two cents.
The Bullet Points:
The All American (1953)
Football Player for Sheridan College
Why You Should Vote For Him:
We can say a lot of things about Tony Curtis, but he is considered a legend in terms of Hollywood acting.
Why You Should Not Vote For Him:
We didn’t really buy Curtis as a Football player.
