GOD bless him. I don't think I can tolerate this life for nearly as long.

One of the few remaining reminders from Hollywood's Golden Age era, even though Olivia de Havilland is still around at the same age (103).

An actor: He didn't end the blacklist and he did rape 16 year old Natalie Wood.

Thank you. And before someone calls me a hypocrite because of Kobe... dude was 103 and didn’t shockingly die in a tragic accident at 41 along with three young girls and five others.

The allegation of the rape came from Natalie Wood’s own mouth contemporaneously and then retold years later by her sister. She had to go to the hospital the injuries were so bad.

And that might not even have been the worst thing Kirk Douglas ever did to a woman.
