1. Nice homage here Tony!

    Yes, this is absolutely Curtis’s best performance ever, and it’s arguably the greatest film he’s worked in for all the reasons you propose. I know some will mention SOME LIKE IT HOT, but I never cared much for that one, despite its great reputation. He did have that great scene in Kubrick’s SPARTACUS with Lawrence Olivier, but as Sidney Falco he found his footing to deliver a performance that went beyond anything he has done before or after, and as you note there was a sizzling chemistry in Lancaster.
