Curly is a boss’s son. He is arrogant, aggressive, and ill-mannered. He has got married recently, and he feels jealous because his wife is a pretty woman who likes to flirt. Curly wants to have full possession of his wife. This man wears boots with high heels to be in the center of attention. Another reason is his small height which he tries to compensate by fighting with men who are larger than he is. When he starts fighting with Lennie, a childish boy smashes his face. Curly is outraged and commands Carlson to kill Lennie.
