He has always had a great body of work and all of his endeavors are always well received. He was one of the first to break the chains of studio contracts and created his own production agency. He is known as an actor that gives him self completely to his role and loves his profession. He has such an intensity and it translates well to film. A few of my favorite films he has made are Lonely are the Brave, Lust for Life, Seven Days in May, The War Wagon and soo many others.
TCM is playing Lonely are the Brave, one of my favorites Kirk Douglas movies, on Tuesday September 27th at 11:30PM ET. So DVR it if you have to but do what you have to do to see this great movie.
