Today is Kirk Douglas’ 100th birthday. One of the last survivor’s of Hollywood’s classic era, Douglas gave us a series of roles ranging from the cynical (Ace in the Hole) to the heroic (Paths of Glory). Douglas, like his five time co-star, Burt Lancaster, were bigger than life on screen. They were stars, the type that no longer exist.
Below is a link to my new post over at my film blog (Twenty Four Frames), Gunfight at the OK Corral, that is part of Shadow and Statin’s Kirk Douglas 100th Birthday Blogathon.
I also added a link to an earlier post I did on one of my favorite films, Ace in the Hole.
