Kirk Douglas, considered by many to be the epitome of the Hollywood hard man, made his film debut in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers in 1946. Three years later, he received his first Academy Award nomination for Champion (1949). Douglas, who received two other Oscar nominations, for The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) and Lust for Life (1956), both directed by Vincente Minnelli, also appeared in Spartacus (1960), Lonely Are the Brave (1962), The List of Adrian Messenger (1963), Seven Days in May (1964), In Harm's Way (1965) and numerous other feature and made for television films.

Though he continued to appear in films, by the '80s Douglas began volunteering much of his time to civic duties.
