Picture of the Day
The well liked actor who referred to himself as the ragman's son was Kirk Douglas (1916 - 2020). 'The Ragman's Son' is the title of the first autobiography written by Kirk Douglas. It was published in 1988. In this book, Douglas chronicles his life story, from his beginnings as the only son in a family of six girls. He points out that he was born to a poor Jewish immigrant and had a very strong lust to become an actor (a major movie star).
Kirk Douglas was born on December 9, 1916 in Amsterdam, New York, USA; he was named Issur Danielovitch at birth. He lived for 103 years and died from natural causes on February 5, 2020 in Beverly Hills, California, USA. During his entire life, he made it clear that he possessed nothing but a sheer determination to succeed in everything that he undertook.
Douglas had a poverty stricken childhood which was overshadowed by a dominant father whom Douglas desperately wanted to please as a boy, teen, and adult. Accordingly he often told the public that he had in him the seed to work hard for personal acknowledgement. He was able to have a vivid life with a various number of stages. He had friends, acquaintances, and others (business associates, fellow actors, etc.) who influenced him and helped with his ups and downs on the path to film stardom. In the end, he was able to become an international star. After 50 years, he was seen as a creative and moral force in the motion picture industry. He made over 90 motion pictures (many successful).
The following is the filmography of American film and stage actor, film producer and author Kirk Douglas (1916–2020). His popular films include Out of the Past (1947), Champion (1949), Ace in the Hole (1951), The Bad and the Beautiful (1952), 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), Lust for Life (1956), Paths of Glory (1957), Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957), The Vikings (1958), Spartacus (1960), Lonely Are the Brave (1962), Seven Days in May (1964), The Heroes of Telemark (1965), Saturn 3 (1980) and Tough Guys (1986).
He is No. 17 on the American Film Institute's list of the greatest male screen legends in American film history. In 1996, he received the Academy Honorary Award "for 50 years as a creative and moral force in the motion picture community".
