R.I.P. Kirk Douglas

Postby Flower » 06 Feb 2020, 12:42

Funny, I was thinking last week about how Olivia DeHavilland, Norman Lloyd and Kirk Douglas were all ove 100 years old. I'm so sorry to hear this but he had a long life and seemed to be in good health for most of it.


As an actor and philanthropist, Douglas received three Academy Award nominations, an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. As an author, he wrote ten novels and memoirs. He is No. 17 on the American Film Institute's list of the greatest male screen legends of classic Hollywood cinema, the highest-ranked living person on the list until his death. After barely surviving a helicopter crash in 1991 and then suffering a stroke in 1996, he focused on renewing his spiritual and religious life. He lived with his second wife (of 65 years), Anne Buydens, a producer, until his death on February 5, 2020, at age 103. A centenarian, he was one of the last surviving stars of the film industry's Golden Age.
