TCM Greatest Classic Films: Legends - Kirk Douglas
Young Man With A Horn
Trumpeter Douglas' talent carries him from honky-tonks to posh supper clubs, but his search for the elusive high note in his mind that's impossible to play starts him on a boozy downward spiral. A feast of hot, cool, moody jazz co-starring Lauren Bacall, Doris Day and Hoagy Carmichael.
The Bad And The Beautiful
Douglas play a magnetic Hollywood mogul who turns talent, charisma and ruthlessness into film success, stomping on careers and creating enemies along the way. Lana Turner, Walter Pidgeon, Dick Powell and Gloria Grahame co-star.
Lust For Life
Winner of Golden Globe and New York Film Critics Best Actor Awards, Kirk Douglas gives a fierce portrayal as artist Vincent van Gogh, torn between joyous inspiration and the dark desperation of his tormented mind. Anthony Quinn plays Paul Gauguin. Vincente Minnelli directs.
Before I Forget
Douglas recounts his remarkable life in a celebrated one-man theater performance augmented with rare film highlights. He shares memories of family, marriages, other Hollywood greats, breaking the blacklist and his life-altering stroke - all with honesty and humor.
