Tony's Horse Slaughter Public Service Announcement

Tony's Painted Pony, "Shiloh"

We are so excited! On our way to Sedona, we stopped in Carefree, AZ to meet "Shiloh", the Painted Pony!

Ready to reveal him for the first time!

Here he is! Shiloh is incredible- wait until you see it in person. He is life size and covered with Tony's cat paintings. This life size Shiloh will be installed at Shiloh Horse Rescue, while the smaller collectible figurines will be available wherever Painted Ponies are sold (as well as in our Shiloh Shop at the rescue).

Isn't he beautiful? He has so much character to him.

Shiloh will stand at the rescue to honor ALL of the horses who have died as a result of the horrible Horse Slaughter industry. He will remind us to keep fighting and standing up for the welfare of all horses.

Tony Curtis- Misconceptions and Facts

This post is to dispel some of the misconceptions and falsehoods that we hear from people about Tony. We will continue to add things as we hear them.

1) Tony was born in the Flower Hospital in Manhattan and grew up in Manhattan and the Bronx. He did not live in Brooklyn.

2) Tony was born Bernard Schwartz and LEGALLY changed his name to Anthony Curtis when he began acting in films. He prefers to be called Tony, not Bernie.

3) Tony is Hungarian, not Italian. Tony is fluent in Hungarian and takes great pride in his Hungarian roots.

4) Tony was very ill in late 2006 and early 2007. He did not have cancer or a stroke. He had pneumonia which caused him to placed on a ventilator for a month. This resulted in muscle loss, weakness and nerve damage. Tony went through intensive rehab to learn to speak, walk, and write again. Tony's mind was never affected, he is just as sharp as he always was.

5) Tony can walk. He uses a wheelchair, and at times a cane, for long distances.

6) Tony loves to travel and loves to meet his fans. Tony will always sign an autograph or take a photo with you.

7) All items that come from Curtis Enterprises (Books, artwork, photos, memorabilia, etc) are hand signed by Tony. All of these items can be ordered from Tony's website.

8) Tony loves his Stetson cowboy hats but he is not from Texas. He jokingly refers to himself as "The Armani Cowboy".

9) Tony has been painting and drawing his entire life. His art has been displayed all over the World and he loves to paint.

10) Tony joined the US Navy when he was 16, he served in the Submarine Service in WWII. He is proud supporter of the US Navy Memorial.

11) Tony has been married five times, not six times as is sometimes reported.

12) Tony is Jewish and is a supporter of the Dohany Synagogue in Budapest.

International Ordering

I wanted to let TC's fans know that yes, we do accept international orders off of the website. We have been having some major problems with our international part the website and we are actually in the process of switching to a new easier to use website in the coming weeks.

Tony in Vanity Fair

I thought you all might enjoy this, Tony loves it:

Tony in Vanity Fair's Proust Questionaire


I just wanted to update all of Tony's fans about his condition. I have been posting updates on his Facebook page.

On Weds evening, we had Tony admitted to a New York Hospital. He had suddenly aspirated food down into his lungs while out at dinner and was having trouble breathing. He was admitted to the ICU unit, where he remains at this point. He is stable and getting better every hour, so we think he will be able to move out of the ICU this weekend and into a regular room for observation. Our NYC trip was extended until he is well enough to travel back home to Las Vegas.

Tony was so sorry to miss his New York events and wanted to let everyone know how much he missed seeing you all. We all thank you for the support, understanding and love you have extended to him, it really does make a huge difference. If all stays well, Tony will be back in New York in October and will hopefully be re-doing the Sardi's book signing.

Again, thank you to everyone who loves Tony. His spirits are high now and he is teasing the nurses!
