Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas turns 100

Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas turns 100
American actor Kirk Douglas, known for his work in films like Spartacus and 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, turns 100 today.

The American actor whose steely gaze, virility and distinctively dimpled chin made him one of Hollywood's most popular leading men, was born Issur Danielovitch on 9 December 1916.

His early films include a 1947 adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's play Mourning Becomes Electra, in which he appeared alongside Rosalind Russell.

But despite his success as a Hollywood movie star, Douglas’ passion was for the immediacy of theatre.

“On the stage, you give something to the audience, more comes back” he recently wrote before condemning the camera as a “cyclops” that leaves him feeling empty.

Nevertheless, it was that “cyclops” that made him a household name during the golden era of classic Hollywood films.

He last acted in the 2008 movie Empire State Building Murders.

Happy birthday!
