  • Kirk Douglas, Dead at 103

    One of the greats (and probably the last) from the golden age of Hollywood. https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/05/enter...bit/index.html

    He starred in two of my favorite films, Paths of Glory (dir. Stanley Kubrick) and Lonely are the Brave.

    Don't forget the Vikings! Released in 1958. It was Kirk D at his best.

    Then there was Spartacus. Another great one.

      Ace in the Hole and Champion were great too. One of my favorite actors. 103 is impressive.

      Haven’t seen Lonely are the Brave.

              Olivia De Haviland from Gone with the Wind is still alive at 103. She might be the last well known one. There are a number of early TV people that are now in their 90's

              Liked most of what Kirk Douglas did.

                  I saw The Vikings on TV when I was just a kid, and loved it. I saw it again a couple of years ago on TCM, and was pleasantly surprised how well it has aged. A great flick with a strong cast that includes Tony Curtis, Ernest Borgnine, and Janet Leigh (Pyscho). RIP, Mr Douglas.
