Tony Curtis proposed to Janet Leigh over the telephone. In spite of studio pressure to not marry, Tony (26) and Janet (23) eloped and were married on June 4, 1951 in Greenwich, Connecticut. Jerry Lewis was best man and his wife was matron of honor. The ceremony was performed by a judge. Janet wore a short sleeved knee-length dress and a stylish hat. Their wedding night dinner was at Danny’s Hideaway in New York City. They had a party the next day to celebrate their marriage.
