Kirk Douglas, in the words of his son Michael

This was Kirk Douglas — in the words of his son Michael.

When Michael Douglas was talking about his father Kirk

Kirk Douglas died on February 5, 2020 at the age of 103. Her son, famous actor Michael Douglas, has constantly praised his talent

What could be better than the words Michael Douglas to return to the career of Kirk Douglas? In 2018, Michael celebrated his father's 102. "Those who bet he wouldn't be 80, you lost a long time ago. None of your children are celebrating their 50-year career in this profession. It’s so important to me, Dad, that you’re here today. Thank you for your advice, for being an inspiration. I just say it with all my heart: I am proud to be your son."

"I was watching my father with Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra"

In 2013, he recalled his childhood memories. “My father was a movie star. So, you don't know anything else. This is the life you know. I was watching my dad with Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra, they were all coming home. I observed their concerns. I don't know how destructive it is. It has been destructive to some, and to others it is a blessing."

In 2011, he dreamed of having the same career. "There really is something about immortality. It’s the continuity of generations. And the two of us made about 150 films. And many years. I think it helps. We understand each other rather well, compared to everything we have experienced in this profession, what is going on there. We can compare our notes. And it's pretty cool to still have him here at 94."

"It's like I was the son of a butcher who goes to see his father at the store"

And then in 1979, when he was only 39, he thought back to the life lessons he had learned from his father. "It's like I was the son of a butcher who goes to see his father at the store. I lived surrounded by stars that I saw in everyday life. I knew it was hard to make a film. I have known the work, the efforts. And I saw this business world much more than the magic of cinema."

    So sad to think Kirk has left the stage, he was extraordinary man and actor, a humanitarian and a devoted father, Condolences to his wife Anne and his children
