LAS VEGAS, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and actress Jamie Lee Curtis were among those who spoke at Tony Curtis' Las Vegas funeral Monday.

The star of more than 150 films -- including "Spartacus," "The Defiant Ones," "Some Like it Hot" and "Operation Petticoat" -- Tony Curtis died of cardiac arrest Sept. 29 at age 85.

People.com said the memorial was held at Palm Mortuary where video clips from his movies were shown and paintings he created were on display.

"We are all evidence of him," CNN quoted Jamie Lee Curtis, the actor's daughter, as saying of their family. "We all got something from him. I, of course, got his desperate need for attention."

"I mean, who has the guts to take off their clothes at the age of 80?" CNN reported Schwarzenegger said, referring to a nude Vanity Fair photo layout Curtis did in 2005.
