Happy 100th Birthday to Kirk Douglas: Enjoy this Hour-long 1971 Interview


There is no living actor with a career as as long and as full of great movies as Kirk Douglas. From his his first film (made when he was already 30!), THE STRANGE LOVE OF MARTHA IVERS (1946) through most of the next six decades, he stayed busy. Douglas starred in, and occasionally also produced some of the finest films of his, or any, era.

Consider this list of highlights:

Here is an interview with the bearded (for a role, probably my personal favorite THE LIGHT AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD) Kirk Douglas on the always-excellent Dick Cavett Show. Of special note is his own commentary over a range of film clips.

Sincere happy birthday wishes on Douglas' 100th birthday. There will never be another like him.
