El adiós a Kirk Douglas
Kirk Douglas was one of the biggest stars of all time & a brilliant actor with an unforgettable, blazing charisma. He will also be remembered for putting his career on the line by defying the Hollywood Blacklist, hiring writer Dalton Trumbo for the classic Spartacus. #RIP 💔 pic.twitter.com/snzoHPMtDr

“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

Kirk Douglas was an icon. It’s hard to put into words what it meant to me to work with this legend who I grew up watching in Westerns in our little theater in Austria. He was larger than life to me - a real life hero. When we finally met on the set of The Villain, he couldn’t have been any sweeter to me. I was a new actor and he was the perfect mentor. He was already in his 60s but he was in unbelievable shape, and he could still jump off a trampoline into his horse’s saddle. I’ll always remember his lessons and our workouts together (back then actors trained secretly, so he’d pull his dumbbells out of his hiding place and we would do curls together). He was the perfect role model and my career wouldn’t have been the same without him. I will miss him dearly and my thoughts are with his family.
Kirk Douglas. The inspirational Scalawag. 103 years on this earth. That’s got a nice ring to it! Great hanging with you man.

KIrk Douglas will always be an icon in the pantheon of Hollywood. He put himself on the line to break the blacklist. My love goes out to my friend Michael and the whole family.

Kirk Douglas was one of the greatest actors of all time. A few years ago Deb & I went around for tea. It was one of the most wonderful afternoons we’ve ever spent. Kirk shared amazing stories. He was funny, self deprecating, giving & brutally honest. In a word ... LEGEND. pic.twitter.com/Q4u88U821h

Em 1950, o senador McCarthy concluiu que artistas eram comunistas e viviam em Hollywood.
Os estúdios, apavorados, demitiram todos.
Em 1960, Kirk Douglas chamou Dalton Trumbo (na lista negra) para roteiro de SPARTACUS. Ganhou 4 Oscars e desmoralizou o macarthismo.
