¡Happy 100th Birthday Kirk Douglas! Remembering his Life and Career

  1. 1. Born Issur Danielovitch to Russian Jewish immigrants on 9 December 1916 in New York, he got the acting bug after appearing in school plays at St Lawrence University. He won a scholarship to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, where he met Betty Joan Perske – later known as Lauren Bacall. He enlisted in the US Navy in 1941, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor plunged the country into World War Two. He married Bacall's friend Diana Dill on 2 November 1943, and they had two sons – Michael in 1944 and Joel in 1947 – before divorcing in 1951. Bacall helped him get his first film role, opposite Barbara Stanwyck in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946). He soon became a Hollywood star, playing rough and rugged heroes in films such as The Big Trees and Champion (which gave him his first Oscar nomination).
