Sources close to the actor tell TMZ Tony -- who suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease -- was at a Henderson, NV Costco on Wednesday debuting his latest artwork products when he began to have trouble breathing.

We're told Tony was taken to a local hospital ... where he's still holed up while doctors conduct tests.

Sources say Tony is in stable condition and will hopefully be released soon.

I was just thinking about him the other day wondering what he was doing. Now I know. COPD is nothing to take lightly. When you can't breath that is serious stuff. I have asthma and I know what that feels like. Extreme temps can trigger an attach too as well as pollen in the air and any other types of air pollution. I hope he gets well soon.

Tony was lucky! On Sunday LVMPD shot and killed a shopper leaving the Costco in Summerlin.

Just watched The Great Race with Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood and Jack Lemmon the other night. Still one of the funniest movies ever made. My hope is that he gets better and will live another dozen years or more. If you've never seen him in The Great Race or Some Like It Hot, check them out. You're sure to get a laugh.

It's amazing that he's still alive - "Some Like it Hot" was made over 50 years ago. Marilyn has been gone nearly 50 years and Jack died nearly 10 years ago.

COPD is an awful disease - get well, Tony!

Best wishes for his complete recovery. A very talented and very sweet man. I once took my aging mom to a book signing he did and he was so nice to her, volunteering to pose for a photo. Absolutely charming, witty and one of the screen's greatest!

It's a classic line from Leave it to Beaver: I haven't seen the episode in decades, but I believe Ken Osmond (Eddie Haskell) is watching Tony Dow (Wally Cleaver) combing his hair or otherwise primping, prompting this wisecrack from "Eddie" to "Wally": "Who do you think you are? Tony Curtis?"
