Tony Curtis has been laid to rest
A memorial service was held at the Palm Mortuary and Cemetery in Las Vegas to celebrate the `Some Like It Hot` actor`s life, with family attending and celebrity friends including Kirk Douglas and Phyllis McGuire among the pallbearers.
His daughter Jamie Lee Curtis - who last week praised her 85-year-old father as leaving behind a "legacy of great performances" - is also believed to have attended the service, which featured a eulogy from his late wife Jill Vandenberg.
A private reception for 200 people at the Luxor hotel-casino on the Las Vegas strip is to be held later to celebrate Curtis` life.
The Oscar-nominated star died last Wednesday (29.09.10) from cardiac arrest at his home in Henderson, Nevada.
Speaking about her husband last week, Jill - who was 42 years younger than Curtis - claimed he spent his life wanting to be a "movie star".
She said: "He died peacefully here, surrounded by those who love him and have been caring for him.
"All Tony ever wanted was to be a movie star. He didn`t want to be the most dramatic actor. He wanted to be a movie star, ever since he was a little kid."
Curtis was married six times and is survived by five children.
