It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103. 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. 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's life was well lived, and he leaves a legacy in film that will endure for generations to come, and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to aid the public and bring peace to the planet. Let me end with the words I told him on his last birthday and which will always remain true. Dad- I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son. #KirkDouglas
Kirk Douglas nije bio samo zvijezda brojnih legendarnih filmova kao što su Spartacus, Paths of Glory, Lust for Life i brojnih drugih, bio je on i producent i redatelj i autor i poznati filantrop. A poput svake velike legende, skroman čovjek koji je uvijek govorio da je njegovo najveće postignuće njegova velika obitelj na koju je bio iznimno ponosan, kao i ona na njega.
Kirk Douglas doživio je 103. godine i bio jedna od posljednjih poveznica s erom poznatom kao “Zlatno doba Hollywooda”.
Ovako se Akademija i brojni glumci opraštaju s Kirkom.
“I wanted to be an actor ever since I was a kid in the second grade. I did a play, and my mother made a black apron, and I played a shoemaker. After the performance, [my father] gave me my first Oscar: an ice cream cone.” -Kirk Douglas
