Hollywood great Kirk Douglas, notable for a variety of roles, including the 1960 classic Spartacus, and father of Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas, has died aged 103.
Born in New York in 1916, he catapulted to fame during Hollywood’s “golden age”, earning his first Oscar nomination for the 1949 film Champion.
His son Michael said in a statement: “It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today.”
“To the world, he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies… but to me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was simply Dad,” it read in part.
“Let me end with the words I told him on his last birthday and which will always remain true. Dad – I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son.”
