Posing with Tony Curtis. Weegee says, “A regular guy… and also a great admirer of my work.””

“If he hasn’t had too hectic a night, Weegee goes over to 42nd Street around 8:30 in the morning to see a gangster movie, or just a movie. “I don’t like Hedy Lamarr or Joan Bennett because when people emote, I like to see them emote. My favorite place to sleep is Trans Lux. Especially in summer. I take off my shoes and first thing I know I’m asleep. I can almost always count on getting a half hour’s sleep there.” Weegee finds that sleep is something of a problem when you work at night, but sometimes, he says, “I give myself a bonus – eight hours sleep.”
