Douglas became an international star through positive reception for his leading role as an unscrupulous boxing hero in Champion (1949), which brought him his first nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor.

LOS ANGELES (AFP) — Kirk Douglas, whose illustrious career has taken in some of cinema’s landmark roles, turns 100 on Friday — attributing his remarkable longevity to his “wonderful marriage” of more than six decades.

The iconic actor revealed in a special essay to mark the milestone that his second wife Anne, 97, had been his inspiration in rebounding from adversity over the years.

“I was spared after a helicopter crash and a stroke to do more good in the world before I leave it.” Douglas appeared in some of cinema’s most iconic roles, from slave Spartacus and painter Vincent van Gogh to Western legend Doc Holliday.

He was in more than 80 movies but, unlike stars of younger generations, never took a role in a sequel.
