Curtis To Play Schwartz In New Love Story
SOME LIKE IT HOT star TONY CURTIS will return to his birth name, SCHWARTZ, for a touching new movie set in Jerusalem.
The ageing movie icon, whose real name is Bernard Schwartz, plays Mr. Schwartz in Alain Zaloum's David + Fatima.
Curtis teams up with Oscar winner Martin Landau, who plays a rabbi in the new film.
The Romeo + Juliet-style story follows the fortunes of a young Jew and his Palestinian Muslim girlfriend as they elope and escape a land where romance between them is forbidden.
