It’s an Ambitious Edition of ‘The Mix’

If last week’s cantankerous edition of The Daily Mix did indeed send you scurrying for the Alka-Seltzer, you’ll be happy to know that this week’s show is downright inspirational.

Because all 13 of our special guests have the highest of hopes for themselves, their country and/or Planet Earth.

Cases in point:

Screen Legend Tony Curtis: No Slowing Down in the Makeout Department

CAPTION: “You can’t take me anywhere,” Tony (above, sans toupee) tells Kate.

“You can’t take me anywhere,” Tony (above, unaccessorized) tells Kate.

He may be 83 years old, but Tony Curtis doesn’t sound like he’ll be cast- ing off his Casanova ways anytime soon.

Interviewed this week on WordSmitten, the actor puts the moves on host Kate Sullivan – before she even has a chance to ask her first question.

“I love life so much that I can’t turn down any of the women that I’ve ever met,” says Tony, who has starred in such classic flicks as The Sweet Smell of Success, Some Like It Hot and The Boston Strangler.

“I’m not being facetious now. I find the company of women so much more appealing and pleasant than the company of men,” he continues – before moving in for the kill. american-prince2

“I have a lot of men – wonderful friends. But still, it’s the way a woman poses and says things. That funny little – see that? I just met you, Kate, and I’m falling in love with you.”

Excellent sport that she is, Kate then suggests a dinner date – to which Tony, whose new memoir is titled American Prince, replies:

“Wherever you want. At the box car at the train station.”
