    On Friday, the legendary actor Kirk Douglas celebrates his 95th year and almost a century of accomplishment. Best known for his iconic roles in "Spartacus," "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," and "Lust for Life," the self-described "ragman's son" made his way from poverty to screen legend.

    The superstar had a humble start: The first-generation American was born Issur Danielovitch Demsky to Russian-Jewish parents in Amsterdam, New York, back in 1916. An avid performer in high school plays, the go-getter made his mark at Saint Lawrence University in upstate New York, where he became a wrestling champion. He later received an acting scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City, where he met classmate and fellow future icon Lauren Bacall.

    God bless Mr. Douglas.  I wish him a Happy Birthday and many more.  He is a magnificent actor.   The modern actors can learn a few things from Mr. Douglas.  He is brilliant, handsome, and wonderful in every way.  Class all the way!
