LAS VEGAS—A longtime friend of actor Tony Curtis says public memorial services for the Oscar-nominated star will be held Monday in Las Vegas.

Luxor casino-hotel executive Gene Kilroy told The Associated Press on Thursday that a funeral and burial for the “Some Like it Hot” heartthrob will be held 11 a.m. Monday at Palm Mortuary & Cemetery, Green Valley.

Kilroy says a reception will be held afterward at the Luxor.

    I have always loved Tony Curtis for he was one of my favorite actors and I had a big crush on him because he was so handsome.

    I’m really saddened by his passing away. He will always be remembered, but he will certainly be missed.

    My deepest condolences to his family.
