The ragman's story : an autobiography / Kirk Douglas

Call No: 81DOU DOU Author: Douglas, Kirk Source: UK Place: London Publisher: Simon and Schuster PubDate: 1988 PhysDes: 510 pages : black and white illustrations ; 24 cm Subject: ACTING; DIRECTION; DIRECTORS; HOLLYWOOD; NEW YORK IN FILMS; ANGELI, PIER; DOUGLAS, ERIC; DOUGLAS, KIRK; DOUGLAS, MICHAEL; LANCASTER, BURT; LUST FOR LIFE (US, Vincente Minelli and George Cukor, 1956); SPARTACUS (US, Stanley Kubrick, 1960) Summary: "Most autobiographies by movie stars are ghost-written and bland. This one is neither. In his powerful, angry and passionate book, Kirk Douglas tells the story of his life in his own words, holding back nothing. Born Issur Danielovitch Demsky, the son of an illiterate immigrant Russian-Jewish ragman, in Amsterdam, New York, Douglas paints a searing and unforgettable picture of an almost Dickensian childhood of brutal poverty - the background that has dominated his life as an actor, father and man, fuelling the great creative anger that has added such depth to his performances. With profound and moving insight, he shows how the determination to overcome that childhood and succeed on his own terms led him to take on roles that most stars of his magnitude would never have risked - Van Gogh, in LUST FOR LIFE; Spartacus the slave; the courageous, conscience-stricken Colonel Dax, in PATHS OF GLORY; the agonized boxer Midge, in CHAMPION, to name only a few - and to fight the studios and the Hollywood establishment for the right to control and produce his own movies, long before it was common practice for stars to do so."
