Vintage TV Themes - Tony Curtis Edition

My favorite Tony Curtis performances were in The Boston Strangler and Some Like It Hot. The kid in me fondly remembers The Great Race.

Hawaii Five-0 got me dredging through old TV theme songs on YouTube, and I found this one in honor of Tony Curtis. It was back when real men weren't afraid to wear V-neck sweaters and ascots. Also, sideburns were cool, and you could drink champagne and smoke unfiltered cigarettes while driving your spiffy race car.  The thing that really clinches it for me is the exclamation point. It's not just The Persuaders, it's The Persuaders!
