    Yep, He was old.
    What a life though. First generation American, veteran, worked his ass off, leaving a hell of a legacy!

    Actually, I thought he was already dead. His son is getting up there too.

    RIP Kirk. Many people were not aware he was not only an action hero actor but a serious dramatic one in his early career. But for me he is defined by Spartacus.

    Same here. Even this day and age, 103 is considered quite a long life!!

    He was from Russian Jewish heritage. His real name was Issur Danielovich.

    My favorite line was from the film "The Champion" when he pronounced the word "champion" in a growling, gutteral way.

    Impressionists ever since have made it a point to use that line in their impressions of Kirk Douglas!

    Check it out!
