A Special Happy Birthday To The One And Only KIRK DOUGLAS

The Hollywood great turns 100 today. Worthy of a thread all it's own.

Loved his films Ace In The Hole, The Vikings, Last train From Gun Hill, Lust For Life and of course Spartacus.

Many happy returns.

    Quite an accomplishment from a certified icon.

    I was especially moved by this post he wrote for the Huffington Post leading up to the election in the states, where he ruminated on his life and being an American and what part democracy plays in that ideal:

    I highly recommend reading it to those that want to hear wisdom from a living representative of a century of amazing change, both good and bad.

    100 eh? A man who has obviously taken care of himself over the years. Great actor and top bloke, a very happy birthday to him. My favourite? A tough one, but I think Spartacus would be difficult to beat.

    20.000 Leagues Under The Sea
    would be my favourite, just seen it again a couple of months ago in glorious HD quality.

    The underrated Cactus Jack Co starring Arnie and Anne Margerate. It was also known as The Villain, Kirk plays a Wile E. Coyote type character

    It's a fun film it's like a live action cartoon when Kirk is upto no good.

    There are quite a few full movies of Cactus Jack on YouTube free to watch, yeah when I was a kid I had every Arnie film on VHS even his more obscure films. Arnie is quite funny, Ann Margerate is hot as always.

    Thanks for the tip! I found it and bookmarked it for a later watch.

    Many happy returns sir!

    Even more than the countless roles I enjoyed him in I feel deep respect for him as a human being. He seems to be a very special man indeed.

    This was 62 years ago... Kirk was older then than I am now. Respect! I feel like I haven't accomplished nearly what he had then. Like Caesar standing next to Alexander's statue, I weep.
