Jamie Lee Curtis remembers dad Tony on his ninth death anniversary

Jamie Lee Curtis paid tribute to her father on his ninth death anniversary.

The Halloween actress shared a touching message on social media almost a decade after her dad Tony Curtis died as she posted an old promo portrait of him and referenced his 1957 film Sweet Smell of Success.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote, “Gone but never forgotten. This day. ‘The cat’s in the bag and the bag’s in the river.’”

The line was said by Curtis’ character – press agent Sidney Falco – in the classic movie which also starred Burt Lancaster and was preserved in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress back in 1993.

The actor passed away aged 85 due to cardiac arrest on September 30, 2010 while he also suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease before his death.

When he died, Jamie paid her respects as she hailed Tony’s legacy and revealed how much his family would miss him.

She said in a statement at the time, “My father leaves a legacy of great performances in movies and in his paintings and assemblages.

“He leaves children and their families who loved him and respected him and a wife and in-laws who were devoted to him. He also leaves fans all over the world.”
