Kirk Douglas' 100th Birthday

Happy 100th birthday Kirk Douglas!!!

He was born 15 years after Walt Disney on December 9, 1916.

The photo on the bottom right is of Kirk and his family on a visit to Walt's home in 1956. You can see a 12 year old Michael Douglas sitting in the back of Walt's train, the Carolwood Pacific. Walt had used the footage on one of his Disneyland TV episodes. This upset Kirk causing him to write a letter to Walt about exploiting his children and to never show the film footage again. Walt sent an apology letter back. Two months later, the tv studio aired a rerun and showed the footage again without Walt's knowledge. Kirk attempted to sue Walt but failed. This is why Kirk never appeared in anymore Disney films after 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (1954).
