A popular, cleft-chinned leading man in the 1950s and ’60s, Kirk Douglas cemented his legacy with his starring role in the 1960 movie Spartacus. He died Wednesday at age 103, his family confirmed.
What else did he accomplish? Douglas also was an acclaimed producer and director. He received three Oscar nominations for best actor, and the Academy Awards honored him in 1996 for his overall contribution to the movie industry. He authored 11 books.
