Hidden Hollywood: Issur Danielovitch AKA Kirk Douglas Can’t Get a Prom Date

In the beginning of his legendary career, Kirk Douglas (1916 – ) b. Issur Danielovitch, was almost typecast as a well-meaning but ineffectual husband in two fine films, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, 1946, and A Letter to Three Wives, 1949.  But his career ascended into mega-stardom when he played cynical heroes motivated by rage: […]
