Growing up as a kid I must have seen this wonderful and complex actor in WW2 movies and later other things.

His body of work spans decades and has been the subject of all kinds of media.

Just look him up and you will learn to appreciate his movies. He was among the greats.

Kirk Douglas, Iconic Actor. Spartacus

Rest in peace 🙏

And his wit was still razor sharp.

They don't make them like that anymore.

Thanks for posting.

Can't think of a better way to go. Old in body but still the same person you've always been in mind.

Should add that he is a US Navy vet and a wounded in action one at that.

 

 

Also recently passed away.

I remember seeing him and Burt Lancaster in Tough Guys, shirtless, and thinking, "I hope I look that good at that age". Of course, he was only 69 back then lol.

I watched him host something after his stroke, and it was kind of sad. He was being quite witty, but having trouble getting it out. It must have been frustrating for him.
