He starred in a lot of movies. Those which are the most immediately recognized were not necessarily his best work.

Two of my favorites, rather obscure but both great cinema:

Lonely Are the Brave (1962)


Ace in the Hole (aka The Big Carnival) (1951)

(full movie) https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1ymyej

For sure, to live a quality life until age 103 is amazing! Wasn't there a movie a few years ago featuring 4 generations of Douglas'?

Kirk Douglas (born Issur Danielovitch Demsky)

Hmm, didnt he think that name would carry him very far in FollyWood?  LOL

Probably forgotten, now, is that this movie - which I haven’t seen - is based a novel by Ed Abbey ‘The Brave Cowboy’.
A pretty decent read, although I read it a long time ago.  And screenplay was by another great of that era - Dalton Trumbo!  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lonely_Are_the_Brave.

So long Mr Douglas, you were a spectacular actor who gave us so much.
