Fairwell to Tony Curtis

Uri Geller with Tony Curtis in 1974

As you know, the great Hollywood actor Tony Curtis has sadly passed away.

Like me, Tony was of Hungarian Jewish descent, so we instantly had some things in common when we met in the early 1970’s.

Tony Curtis was an incredible movie actor as we all know, with roles in well over one hundred movies! You may also be aware that he was a fantastic artist, however what many people are not aware of is Tony Curtis the philanthropist!

Tony was instrumental founding and supporting the Emanuel Foundation, a charity which worked to preserve & restore sites of Jewish interest in Hungary, including the restoration of Dohany Temple in Budapest, the largest synagogue in Europe, and the second largest in the world! It also happens to be the synagogue in which my parents got married!


Also Tony’s support made possible the creation of the Holocaust memorial, which was unveiled in 1988, for which Tony was present.



So Tony Curtis has left the world a far more enriched place in so many ways, with his acting, his art & also his generosity. Thank you Tony!

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Absolutely amazing”

“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”

“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
