I liked Tony Curtis but he was far better suited for comedy than for drama. It’s hard to watch a movie like Spartacus when an actor (Curtis) speaks with a Brooklyn accent.
Tony Curtis in Spartacus: I am a sing - er of songs. Or in some medieval epic: Yonder is the castle of my fah-duh.

Tony Curtis was from The Bronx, not Brooklyn. The accents are very similar.

speaks with a Brooklyn accent.
Not likely a Brooklyn accent.
Curtis was born Bernard Schwartz in the Bronx, New York, the son of Emanuel Schwartz and his wife Helen Klein. His parents were Hungarian Jewish immigrants from Mátészalka, Hungary. Hungarian was Curtis' only language until he was five or six, postponing his schooling.

It’s hard to work around that accent. Yul Brynner wasn’t so happy with him in Taras Bulba, but that is a great one too.
