Ah that's sad :(
I was just thinking about him on Tuesday as I saw a doccumentary film about an American photographer in which Michael Douglas was speaking a few times.
Great age though!
RIP

Yes, I saw this yesterday and sad, but he reached a great age. Lots of good films too and a handsome man in his younger days. RIP Kirk.

Yes a great film and a superb piece of music, but did you notice how many British Actors and Actresses were in it, including Dandy Nicols. He is reunited with that other great with whom he made seven movie - Burt Lancaster, remember Gunfight at the OK Corral. Another great from the arts world lost.
As all have said RIP Kirk, you are now in Valhalla.

Great picture, John, I don't think you'd see too many of todays top film actor's doing that - more like Lambherginis.
