Is love different at different stages in one's life? The
details of each story are unique, but everyone will
be able to identify with these men, women and
teens — and fall in love with Love, Etc.
A true rags-to-riches story! This fitting tribute to one
of the 20th century's most iconic leading men spans
from Curtis's (born Bernard Schwartz) tough and
humble beginnings in the Bronx to his most striking
Through intimate interviews with Tony, as well as

Dolphin Boy is the true story of Morad, a young Arab
who endured a beating so horrific he completely
disconnected with life. However, his father was
determined not to put his son in an institution. An
Israeli doctor suggested treatment with dolphins,
and the family gave up everything for this last
chance - which literally worked a miracle.
But Dolphin Boy is not a documentary with simple
or quick answers. Morad manages to bounce back
to reality and even falls in love — but there comes
a time when he must consider the past and return
to his village.
