I'm for some time been pretty familiar with Tony Curtis' work, I'm also quite familiar with Jude Law's work. Never thought to compare them before.
However, just the other night I saw Sweet Smell of Success
for the very first time. As I watched Tony Curtis, I kept being struck by the feeling that not only could you successfully cast Jude Law in that role, but that I could imagine his performance being almost exactly the same as Tony Curtis' performance: both the character choices and interpretation as well as things like mannerisms, speech patterns, reactions, facial expressions.
Of course this is all speculation, but speculation based on Jude Law's existing work.
Can anyone else see this? Dopers familiar with Sweet Smell of Success
or does anyone see it in any other Tony Curtis movies?
