CEA Program Director Remembers Tony Curtis

October 06, 2010
by CEA CAPA Content Creator
CEA's French Riviera Program Director Kristin Kerr has been been organizing internships for CEA students at the Cannes Film Festival since 1996.

"I’ve met many big stars over the past 14 years at the Cannes Film Festival, but my most memorable encounter was the one I made with Tony Curtis at the 1996 Festival, when we spent a whole day shooting a documentary about the actor’s life. He was very friendly and personable and made all of the crew feel at ease, signing autographs and chatting with us at the end of the day’s filming."
Tony Curtis and Kristin Kerr, CEA program director in French Riviera, in 1996.

Tony Curtis appeared in more than 100 films during his 60-year career and is probably best known for his role in “Some Like it Hot” alongside Marilyn Monroe.

"I was sad to hear that Tony passed away recently at the age of 85, but I’ll always remember the day I spent in the company of one of Hollywood’s biggest legends!"

Students enrolled in the CEA French Riviera program in spring get the unique opportunity to apply for an internship working as production assistants for a US-based production company at the Cannes Film Festival in May each year.
