Perhaps the last Golden Age idol-Hollywood Icon Kirk Douglas Turns 96 today.

Most Baby Boomers will remember him for his role in “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” or our favorite, “Spartacus.”

Regardless of the movie, he was always bigger than life and the screen that he appeared on.

Kirk Douglas turned 96 today, and according to Bob Green, he has come far from his early N.Y. days as Issur Danielovitch. Kirk Douglas was born in Amsterdam, New York, on December 9, 1916.

He made his Broadway debut in 1941, served in the U.S. Navy and embarked on a screen career in 1946. Popular films include “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” “Spartacus” and “The Bad and the Beautiful.” Douglas also worked as director.
