The Guardian interiews Kirk Douglas

Somewhere else this morning I came across a link to an article in the UK newspaper The Guardian:

Kirk Douglas: ‘I never thought I’d live to 100. That’s shocked me’

There's a lot of interesting stuff in the interview, from Kirk's early days, to his friendships with Burt Lancaster and John Wayne, to hiring noted Communist Dalton Trumbo to do the screenplay for Spartacus. Apparently Dalton's daughter was an ingrateful blankety-blank who hated that Kirk took credit for getting Dalton's on-screen credit in Spartacus. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I guess.

Read the whole thing, as they say.
