Who Else Was Gutted To Hear That Kirk Douglas Had Passed Away?

I used to love watching his movies as a kid. Burt Lancaster was my real hero (anybody ever see The Crimson Pirate?) but Kirk was right up there. I remember he and Burt used to do a lot of stuff together, including one of my favourite ever westerns, Gunfight At The OK Coral.

There was an interview on the BBC I was reading earlier, and according to Kirk, perhaps his greatest achievement was breaking the so-called Hollywood blacklist, whereby, as part of the Red Scare, people in Hollywood who had been proven (or often just accused) of sympathising with communism, were excommunicated from the industry.

There's only really Sean Connery left now, out of the big 1960s movie icons.

He really did live a long life, for sure he will be missed and remembered.

Kirk was great but Burt was better. The Crimson Pirate, Vera-Cruz, O.K Coral and Valdez is Coming were a few of the best westerns ever made. Lancaster brought the bar fight scene with Ernest Borgnine in 'From Here to Eternity' almost to life.

Like Burt, Kirk was a natural athlete and I'll always remember him leaping along the row of oars protruding from the long boat in The Vikings. Vaulting into his horse in The War wagon was further evidence of his athletic prowess.

R.I.P., Kirk. When they made you they threw the mould away.

Kirk was great but Burt was better. The Crimson Pirate

Glad someone else remembers that film. It was my favourite as a kid.

Side: I Admit It

I'm with you on that. Kirk was one of the greats, but Burt was one of my favorites. My favorite movie of his was Elmer Gantry. He played an evangelical/revivalist and I thought he was masterful in that role.

I saw Elmer Gantry in which he excelled. He was awarded an Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in that movie.

Personally I feel his role as Joe Erin in Vera Cruz best suited his acting style.

I saw the Crimson Pirate as a child in The Willowfield Cinema (known locally as the Winky) where the admission fee for children was four clean jam jars.

Whoever paid in then went and burst open the emergency doors when all your friends ran in and scattered.

Of course a few were caught, but most got to see the movie.

Yes, there were the 'good old, bad old days.

In the opening scene of this movie when Burt swung onto the top of the mainsail with the intro, to the film I thought he was talking to me personally.

Who Else Was Gutted

Hello hater:

Are you talking about Issur Danielovitch, Ashkenazi Jew?

What's to be gutted about? He was a nice Jewish boy with a great family who had a successful career and lived to be 103.. I should be so lucky.

excon, Ashkenazi Jew too

Ashkenazi Jew

I demand that you explain what is "scientific" about labeling a different race from the Hebrews with the name of a religion that came from the Hebrews and conflating the religion with the race that isn't even a race that you genetically are, and then calling yourself that religion/race while being an atheist.

Hello hater:

Fuck you and your demands.. However, for the sake of truth, I'll respond to your nonsense once again.

1) DNA is science.. I dunno why that's so. It just is. Some people believe it. Some people deny it.. Can't do nothing about that.

2) I'm a Jew because the authority on the matter, the Talmud, says that I am. That a Jew hater like you says I'm not, is stupid, stupid, stupid.

3) The Jews are a race. How can you doubt it when you SEE it in our faces?? Presbyterians don't look alike.. Catholics don't look alike. Jews look alike. Only races of people look alike.

4) We've been Jews for 6,000 years, and I'm, scientifically speaking, a 97% Pure blooded Jew.. The only pure blooded thing you are is 97% HATER.

5) I'd stop reading that antisemitic shit if I was you.. It's rotting your brain..

excon, 97% Ashkenazi Jewish Prince

I was a big fan of Kirk Douglas but he had a good long run and will be fondly remembered at least for a while.

RIP

but he had a good long run

Didn't he just. When he was born, the first world war was still going on!

I discovered that immortality is just a myth back when Bob Hope died.
