Kirk Douglas dies aged 103

A real 'star' in the old school; many great roles. However, after "Spartacus", I hope they check that it's really him,,

I think his best line (as reported) was from life. At his 100th he remarked to a well-wisher that he would be welcome at his 200th. His last role seems to have been in 2008. Not many still earning at 89.

R.I.P Kirk Douglas. Many great movies. One of my favourites 'The Way West 1967'.

About ten years ago I remember seeing him on a U.K. TV chat show and he was the 'life and soul' despite having suffered a stroke some time before. He was also full of wise remarks, so that show could stand as his memorial if it still exists somewhere.

I first registered his existence as a kid in July 1955. He starred as Ned Land in the new film '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' and I saw a trailer on someone's TV.
