‘It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103,’ he said. Douglas was the child of Jewish Russian workers who rose through the positions to get one of Hollywood’s greatest ever stars. Douglas got basic approval for his job in the 1960 exemplary Spartacus where he played the combatant chief of a R
oman slave revolt. The Douglas Foundation, which he and Anne Douglas helped to establish, has given millions to a wide scope of organizations, from the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to the Motion Picture and Television Fund. In 2015, the establishment enriched the Kirk Douglas Fellowship – a full-educational cost, 2-year grant – at the American Film Institute.
