    Kirk Douglas looks around America these days and he sees too many guns. The 96-year-old actor, best known for performances in classic films like Spartacus, Paths of Glory and Lust for Life, took to the cyber pages of The Huffington Post to call for more gun control--and far less guns. I often played the good cowboy on screen, riding in to save the day. Now, everybody thinks he is a cowboy too. That frightens me. We have become a cowboy country with too many guns.... I cannot understand the people who are against some form of gun control. They should...

    Warner Bros. today will launch a service giving the public the opportunity to custom-order DVDs of films never before released via the medium. The move is seen as a response to dwindling DVD sales and also to customer demand for titles that while not totally obscure, didn't necessarily generate enough heat to merit a full-on DVD release. The Warner Archive Collection, available at WarnerArchive.com, includes films dating back to the silent age and for $19.95 per disc Warners will burn, package and ship for receipt within an estimated five days. Currently there are 150 titles available with for a total...
  • Spartacus turns 92 Tuesday.

    Kirk Douglas has enjoyed an illustrious career with his larger-than-life acting style. So what if those silly academy voters failed to give him an Oscar? Life is more than awards. Douglas has overcome quite a lot to reach 92. In an August column for Newsweek, he explained how deep depression set in after he suffered a stroke a dozen years ago. He explained how his wife pushed him to get out of bed and work on his speech therapy. "Depression is caused by thinking too much about yourself," he wrote. "Try to think of others, try to help them. You...

    At 90 years of age, it takes a lot to surprise Kirk Douglas. But there's no doubt John Travolta caught his fellow actor off guard when he planted a flamboyant kiss on his lips at a Los Angeles awards ceremony. The Spartacus star, in keeping with his manly image fostered in 90 films, had extended a firm hand of congratulation to Travolta as he stepped up to receive a gong for excellence and versatility.

    LOS ANGELES, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- My name is Kirk Douglas. You may know me. If you don't ... Google me. I was a movie star and I'm Michael Douglas' dad, Catherine Zeta-Jones' father-in-law, and the grandparents of their two children. Today I celebrate my 90th birthday. I have a message to convey to America's young people. A 90th birthday is special. In my case, this birthday is not only special but miraculous. I survived World War II, a helicopter crash, a stroke, and two new knees. It's a tradition that when a "birthday boy" stands over his cake he...

    Marlon Brando may have possessed the greatest talent of any American actor of the past 100 years, but for most of his career, he wasted that talent. Charley Malloy: Look, kid, I -- how much you weigh, son? When you weighed one hundred and sixty-eight pounds you were beautiful. You coulda been another Billy Conn, and that skunk we got you for a manager, he brought you along too fast. Terry Malloy: It wasn't him, Charley, it was you. Remember that night in the Garden you came down to my dressing room and you said, "Kid, this ain't your night....
