The Spartacus acting legend, who had been in good health since suffering a stroke in 1996, is survived by his wife of 65 years, Anne, and his sons Michael, Joel, and Peter.
“It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103,” Michael Douglas said in a statement to PEOPLE. “To the world, he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to.”
Michael continued, “But to me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was simply Dad, to Catherine, a wonderful father-in-law, to his grandchildren and great grandchild their loving grandfather, and to his wife Anne, a wonderful husband.”
Kirk Douglas, Hollywood Icon and Spartacus Star, Dies at 103
Stephen M. Silverman February 5, 2020
Heading a Hollywood family, though, was often as difficult as being in one. As Michael has said on several occasions, including during his 1987 Best Actor Oscar acceptance speech for Wall Street, growing up in his father’s shadow was not always easy.
In 1979, Michael told PEOPLE, “Kirk Douglas was certainly a hard act to follow. I mean, there he was hanging from the cross in Spartacus, walking across the ranks of oars in The Vikings …” Added Kirk: “I think having a famous father was a pain in the ass for him.”
Lust for Life - Trailer #4b
Warner Bros. July 8, 2014
OSCAR WINNER: Best Supporting Actor - Anthony Quinn Vibrant orange sunflowers. Rippling yelow grain.
Trees bursting with white bloom. "The pictures come to me as in a dream," Vincent Van Gogh said. A dream that too often turned to life-shattering nightmare.
Winner of Golden Globe and New York Film Critics Best Actor Awards, Kirk Douglas gives a fierce portrayal as the artist torn between the joyous inspiration of his genius and the dark desperation of his tormented mind.
The obsessed Van Gogh painted the way other men breathe, driving away family and friends, including artist Paul Gauguin (Anthony Quinn in his Oscar-winning role). Directed by Vincente Minnelli and saturated with the hues of Van Gogh's sea, field and sky, 1956's "Lust for Life" captures the ecstasy of art. And the agony of one man's life.
"Lust for Life" was a brilliant movie; actually it was more of a Vincent Van Gogh documentary with its own romantic story!
RIP ... A hundred and three; for certain that was a life achievement!
