Words Taken from his Son Micheal Douglas facebook page 

 

 

A fantastic life span at 103 but the film industry and pretty much anyone that remembers Kirk Douglas will be saddened by the news.

Spartacus prob one of he films he is best known for we remember watching as children with our parents.

A little known fact that Kirk Pickstone from the station when introducing himself says “its Kirk as In Douglas” then people got it right.

Kirk Douglas Biography (Wikipedia)

Kirk Douglas (born Issur Danielovitch; December 9, 1916-February 5, 2020) was an American retired actor, producer, director and author. A centenarian, he was one of the last surviving stars of the film industry’s Golden Age. After an impoverished childhood with immigrant parents and six sisters, he made his film debut in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946) with Barbara Stanwyck. Douglas soon developed into a leading box-office star throughout the 1950s, known for serious dramas, including westerns and war movies. During his career, he appeared in more than 90 movies. Douglas is known for his explosive acting style, which he displayed as a criminal defense attorney in Town Without Pity (1961).

Douglas became an international star through positive reception for his leading role as an unscrupulous boxing hero in Champion (1949), which brought him his first nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor. Other early films include Young Man with a Horn (1950), playing opposite Lauren Bacall and Doris Day, Ace in the Hole opposite Jan Sterling (1951), and Detective Story (1951), for which he received a Golden Globe nomination as Best Actor in a Drama. He received a second Oscar nomination for his dramatic role in The Bad and the Beautiful (1952), opposite Lana Turner, and his third nomination for portraying Vincent van Gogh in Lust for Life (1956), which landed him a second Golden Globe nomination.
