荷里活影星卻德格拉斯(Kirk Douglas)離世,享年 103 歲。

死訊由其子米高德格拉斯(Michael Douglas)在 Instagram 公布,指卻德格拉斯於 2020 年 2 月 5 日在加州比華利山家中去世。他形容,父親是個「傳奇」,是「電影黃金時代的演員,活在黃金時代」。

卻德格拉斯晚年,兩度逃出鬼門關。1991 年,他乘坐直升機時,與一架小型飛機相撞。同一機上兩人喪生,但當時 75 歲的他,雖然背部受重傷,但意外活下來。1996 年,年過 80 的他又嚴重中風,頻臨生死邊緣,後來奇蹟地康復,但變得行動不便、說話不清。

生於 1916 年的卻德格拉斯,早年曾服役於美國海軍,參與第二次世界大戰。戰後,他加入電台工作,其後涉足影壇。他曾參演電影《慾海浮生》,飾演梵高一角; 又於電影《萬夫莫敵》飾演領導反抗羅馬共和國統治的斯巴達克斯起義的斯巴達克斯。其鐵漢形象深入民心,唯 1950 年代三度入圍奧斯卡金像獎最佳男主角皆未能得獎。雖然如此,卻德格拉斯晚年屢獲殊榮。1996年,他獲頒奧斯卡終身成就獎,2001 年獲得第 51 屆柏林影展終身成就獎。

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103. To the world he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to. But to me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was simply Dad, to Catherine, a wonderful father-in-law, to his grandchildren and great grandchild their loving grandfather, and to his wife Anne, a wonderful husband. Kirk's life was well lived, and he leaves a legacy in film that will endure for generations to come, and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to aid the public and bring peace to the planet. Let me end with the words I told him on his last birthday and which will always remain true. Dad- I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son. #KirkDouglas
