Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Kirk Douglas

Here is a song performed by the great Ed Ames, chosen to illustrate the fabulous figure of Kirk Douglas.
Kirk Douglas (born Issur Danielovitch Demsky in 1916 in Amsterdam, New York, to a Jewish family who immigrated from Gomel, now in Belarus) is an American actor and film producer known for his gravelly voice and his recurring roles as the kinds of characters Douglas himself once described as "sons of bitches". He is on the list of the greatest male American screen legends of all time. Kirk Douglas received three Academy Award nominations for his work in "Champion", "The Bad and the Beautiful" and "Lust for Life" (as Vincent Van Gogh). Douglas received a special Oscar in 1996 for "50 years as a moral and creative force in the motion picture community". For his contributions to the motion picture industry, Kirk Douglas has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 1984, he was inducted into the Western Performers Hall of Fame at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. In October 2004, the avenue "Kirk Douglas Way" in Palm Springs, California, was named in his honor by the Palm Springs International Film Society and Film Festival. Popular at home and around the world, Kirk Douglas received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1981, the French Legion of Honor in 1985, and the National Medal of the Arts in 2001.
Ed Ames co-starred with Kirk Douglas on stage in New York, in "One flew over the cuckoo's nest", and sang the title song of the westen "The War wagon" with Kirk Douglas and John Wayne.
Enjoy Kirk's legendary figure and beauty!
