LAS VEGAS -- Celebrities, fans, friends and family members are saying goodbye to Tony Curtis during a Las Vegas funeral service celebrating the movie star's life.

Hundreds of guests stood as services began Monday at a funeral chapel in Las Vegas.

The 85-year-old died Wednesday of cardiac arrest at his home in Henderson.

Longtime friend and pall bearer Gene Kilroy says Curtis' sixth wife, Jill Curtis, planned to eulogize her husband of 16 years.

A crowd lined up Monday outside Palm Mortuary & Cemetery well before the funeral.

Inside, seven colorful paintings by Curtis stood on easels while a film tribute began memorializing the young, dark-haired star of such films as "The Defiant Ones," ''Spartacus" and "Some Like It Hot."
