(LAS VEGAS) -- More than 400 people gathered at a Las Vegas funeral chapel Monday to remember the late acting legend Tony Curtis, who died last Wednesday at the age of 85. According to the Las Vegas Sun, the service began with a film tribute to the Oscar-nominated actor before Curtis' daughter, actress Jamie Lee Curtis, and other guests spoke.
Jamie Lee Curtis told the guests at Palm Mortuary & Cemetery, "No matter what the question is, the answer is love. Remember that in my father's memory."
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recalled a piece of advice Curtis once gave him: "Get rid of the accent, change the name...and you will make it." Curtis himself used a stage name. His birth name was Bernard Schwartz.
Comedian and impressionist Rich Little, another guest at the service, told reporters that the Some Like It Hot star had "went from a pretty boy to a terrific, terrific dramatic actor."
A burial and reception were held after the service.
