Kirk DOUGLAS was born on December 9, 1916 Amsterdam, Montgomery County, New York. He married Anne Buydens in 1954. Kirk Douglas was born into poverty the son of Jewish Russian immigrants as Issur Danielovitch Demsky on December 9, 1916 in Amsterdam, New York. He used his great talent to climb to the highest pinnacle of Hollywood stardom. He is convincing in both sympathetic and unsympathetic parts where his chiseled features, easy smile, distinctive voice, and famous cleft chin can suggest mirth or menace. His multi layered performances are passionate.

He waited tables to put himself through St. Lawrence University where he was a champion wrestler and did theater work. He became a professional wrestler and held numerous jobs to pay his way through the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He had small roles on Broadway before serving in the Navy in World War II. After his return home from service his friend Lauren Bacall suggested him to producer Hal B. Wallis who tested him and gave him the lead role in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers [1946]. Kirk received terrific reviews and remained in Hollywood to make Out of the Past [1947] and I Walk Alone [1947] with friend Burt Lancaster. He had a key part in A Letter to Three Wives [1949] and achieved true stardom portraying a boxer in the classic Champion [1949].

He now was a top performer and appeared in the following roles of note: 1950 - Young Man With a Horn and The Glass Menagerie, 1951 - The Big Carnival and Detective Story, 1952 - The Big Sky and The Bad and the Beautiful, 1954 - 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, 1955 - Ulysses and Man Without a Star, 1956 - Lust for Life as Vincent van Gogh, 1957 - Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and Paths of Glory, 1958's The Vikings, 1959's The Devil's Disciple, 1960's Strangers When We Meet and the epic Spartacus [1960]. As the producer of Spartacus he broke the Hollywood blacklist by insisting that screen writer Dalton Trumbo be given proper credit for his work.

He formed Bryna Productions in 1955 and later Joel Productions to produce his own films and films of others.

During the 1960's and 1970's he starred in such notable films as 1961's Town Without Pity and The Last Sunset, 1962's Lonely Are the Brave and Two Weeks in Another Town, 1963's The List of Adrian Messenger, 1964's Seven Days in May, 1965's In Harm's Way, 1966's Cast a Giant Shadow, 1967's The War Wagon with John Wayne, 1968's The Brotherhood, 1969's The Arrangement, 1970's There Was a Crooked Man..., 1971's A Gunfight, 1973's Scalawag, 1975's Posse and Once Is Not Enough, 1978's The Fury, and 1979's Home Movies and The Villain.

He has remained active in films in the 1980's and 1990's appearing in The Final Countdown [1980], The Man From Snowy River [1982], Tough Guys [1986], Oscar [1991] and Greedy [1994]. He is the best selling author of his autobiography "The Ragman's Son", "The Gift", "Climbing the Mountain: My Search for Meaning", "The Secret", "The Broken Mirror: A Novella", "Last Tango in Brooklyn", "Dance with the Devil" and "Kirk Douglas's Young Heroes". He is also a director, producer, and great humanitarian serving as a Goodwill Ambassador for the State Department and receiving numerous awards for his efforts.

Personally, he has been married twice, first to Diana Dill in 1943, divorced 1951, mother of sons Michael and Joel, and Anne Buydens from 1954 to the present, mother of sons Peter and Eric. Eric passed away July 6, 2004. Michael Douglas brought Kirk's dream to reality when he made One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest into a film. Kirk had appeared in the stage production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in 1963.

He was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1981, the highest U.S. honor a civilian can receive.

Michael Douglas Biography: Michael Douglas is one of the few actors who actually appears to be a walking paradox. A household name, an estimated worth of over $200 million, a father who was one of the world's biggest film stars in the 50s and 60s, and a wife whose father is younger than him, Douglas has indeed gained fame and acclaim, but as many critics have put it, Kirk Douglas and Diana Douglas. His parents divorced when he was six, and he went to live with his mother and her new husband. Only seeing Kirk on holidays, Michael attended Eaglebrook school in Deerfield, Massachusetts, where he was about a year younger than all of his classmates. Deciding he wanted to be an actor in his teenage years, Michael often asked his father about getting a 'foot in the door'. Kirk was strongly opposed to Michael pursuing an acting career, claiming that it was an industry with many downs and few ups, such a depressing industry that he wanted all four of his sons to stay out of it. But Michael was persistent. When he first started his career in the early 1970s people were all too ready to tag him as 'the next Kirk Douglas'. But Michael defied all those critics by accepting wimpy, hippy, quiet roles, a far cry from the leading man, all-American hero roles that his father was most famous for. It didn't earn Michael much credibility, but it earned him his own identity. His first real break came on the TV show "The Streets of San Francisco" (1972) starring opposite screen veteran Karl Malden. Michael gained quite a following on this show until he quit it to produce One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975). His own life was never brilliant either. He had dreams of acting alongside brother Joel Douglas, the one he was closest to out of his 3 siblings. Growing up with Joel, and only seeing Peter Douglas and the late Eric Douglas when he visited his father, Michael was obviously closer to Joel, yet the latter wanted no part of the acting his family was famous for. Michael married the young Diandra Luker (b. 1958) in 1977, and fathered one son with her, Cameron. The marriage failed, as Diandra claimed that she was sick of his womanizing, absenteeism, and not being 'a proper father to Cameron'. In the 80s Michael tried his hand at comedies, the most successful being Romancing the Stone (1984), its sequel The Jewel of the Nile (1985), and The War of the Roses (1989) in which he co-starred with Danny DeVito and Kathleen Turner. It was in the 90s though, that Douglas became his most notorious. He starred in Basic Instinct (1992), a thriller, heavy on the sex and violence, a worldwide hit. Having played a similar role in Fatal Attraction (1987), it did indeed appear that Douglas was being typecast in the 'Man against Woman' type roles. He did nothing to sway this image, starring in Disclosure (1994). Michael tried to break away from this image with the movies The American President (1995) and The Ghost and the Darkness (1996), yet when he started dating Catherine Zeta-Jones, 25 years his junior, this image continued, even after their marriage. After two children with her, Michael is trying to settle down to become a more 'family-oriented' actor. The comedy Wonder Boys (2000) and Douglas-clan movie It Runs in the Family (2003) were only minor hits, and it appears Michael is again looking for a career change. Trying his hand now at light-hearted comedies, like a re-make The In-Laws (2003/I), he hopes to break away from the reputation he has acquired in the past.

Michael Douglas Quotes: "I'm not a big filmophile. I don't watch movies a lot for a hobby. I spend all my time watching sporting events. Because, opposed to movies, you can never tell how they're going to end." "Don't go to L.A. unless there's work. It's one of the most frustrating and depressing places to be an actor. The problem is that it has no center. I would try to do something here first." (on Inside the Actors Studio, answering an actor's question about whether to move from NYC to L.A.)

Was named to Quigley Publications' Top 10 Poll of Money-Making Stars six times between 1985 and 1995, hitting a high of #2 in 1987. Surprising, despite a career that has spanned seven decades, his father Kirk never made the list, the annual poll of movie exhibitors that ranks the top stars in terms of box-office drawing power.

Carys joins Douglas dynasty

Carys Zeta Douglas has become the latest addition to the fourth generation of the Douglas acting dynasty.

Catherine Zeta Jones' second baby with husband Michael Douglas replaces two-year-old Dylan Michael as the family's newest Hollywood star-in-waiting.

Carys enters a world destined to be defined by wealth and fame - and joins an illustrious Oscar-winning line-up of Douglas talent.

Michael has a 24-year-old actor son, Cameron, from a previous marriage - while Michael's father Kirk is still being cast at the age of 86.

Last month, Catherine secured the latest piece of Hollywood gold for the Douglas trophy cabinet with her best supporting actress Oscar for Chicago.

The Douglas clan is a model of the American dream rooted in Kirk's younger days in New York in the early part of the last century.

Born Issur Danielovich Demsky to Russian Jewish immigrant parents in 1916, he had waited on tables to finance his university education.

He also did odd jobs in the theatre and later trained at the Academy of Dramatic Arts - following a spell as a professional wrestler.

In 1946 one of his former classmates, actress Lauren Bacall, recommended him to producer Hal Wallis and his film career began.

'Gladiator'

Son Michael's break came in 1972 as a detective opposite Karl Malden in US TV drama The Streets Of San Francisco.

He spent years overcoming feelings of inferiority to his father, whom he idolised as a "gladiator".

The young Michael lived in a commune and dabbled in drugs, then dropped out of university and took a job as a petrol station attendant.

He later went back to college to study acting, although his father never believed he would make it.

He enjoyed his first major film success as a producer of the Oscar-winning 1975 film One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

As an actor Michael would go on to become every bit as successful as his father, with memorable roles in Romancing The Stone, Fatal Attraction, and his Oscar-winning performance as Gordon Gekko in Wall Street.

He met Catherine on the set of Steven Soderbergh's Traffic which won the best director award at the 2001 Oscars.

The Welsh actress had previously broken into Hollywood starring in the epic The Mask of Zorro in 1998.

Zeta's beginnings

The daughter of a former Swansea factory worker, she showed early talent as a dancer and singer.

Aged 15, she starred in the musical 42nd Street and went on to nationwide recognition through her TV role as Mariette Larkin in ITV's 1990s drama The Darling Buds Of May.

She honed her movie craft in films such as High Fidelity and Traffic, before striking gold with Chicago.

Her portrayal of the vampish Velma Kelly earned her a wealth of critical plaudits and the Academy Award.

Michael's son Cameron stars with his father and grandfather Kirk in It Runs in the Family which opens in the US on Friday.

The first time the three generations have appeared in the same film, it tells of a dysfunctional New York family and their attempts at reconciliation.

There is no doubt that Carys and brother Dylan have been born into a life of privilege - and the unavoidable media attention that goes with being a Douglas.

Their famously privacy-loving parents, fresh from their High Court case against Hello! magazine, will try to shield their children from the worst excesses of the paparazzi.

Secluded hideaway

The couple were recently reported to be furious that tour operators were offering holidaymakers coach trips to view their home in Majorca.

A more secluded hideaway is The Prince Maurice hotel on Mauritius, where the couple are regular guests.

Said to be among the island's most private hotels, its thatched suites sit on stilts overlooking a lagoon.

In an interview two years ago, Catherine spoke of her fears for son Dylan's privacy.

She said: "In two years' time I want to be able to take my son to the park and not have to explain why 20 people with cameras are running after us.

"I hope the frenzy will die down so he won't have to sacrifice the good things just because photographers are documenting his every move."

     Diandra DOUGLAS was born in 1956. She and an unknown person were divorced in June, 2000. Diandra Douglas and Hampton Bacon in Custody Battle

May 26, 2004

Hollywood socialite and multi-millionaire Diandra Douglas was married to actor-producer Michael Douglas for 20 years, until their split in 1995. She walked away from that marriage with a reported $60 million and hooked up with Wall Street mogul Zack Hampton Bacon III. Now that relationship too, has soured. Zack spoke only to "CJ" about what caused the split and the custody battle the two are engaged in.

"She alleged I put my hand on her shoulder and shoved her down the corridor," Bacon told us. "I“ve never seen this viciousness and maliciousness in Diandra," Bacon said. "The romantic relationship is destroyed."

Zack related how he and Diandra had tried for three years to conceive children. After a fifth in-vitro attempt, twin baby girls were born to a surrogate -- but sadly they did not survive. Finally twin boys were born in March, also through a surrogate. The children are genetically related to Zack, but not Diandra.

"Diandra had her heart set on a little girl; God gave us boys," Bacon said. "The first warning flag I had, Diandra kept saying, ’They“re your babies.“ I think she became upset the boys were genetically mine."

Suddenly, says Zack, Diandra made plans to adopt a baby girl from Kazakhstan, but the couple“s twin boys had been born 12 weeks premature. Zack was concerned: "I said, ’This is insane. We've got premature babies, there are medical complications, they need our attention.“"

But Zack says Diandra persisted in pursing the adoption and then made a move he couldn“t believe. "I was shocked that she ambushed me with this custody case," Bacon said.

According to documents, Diandra wanted custody of the twins and the adopted child, and she wanted to raise them in California, even though she and Zack resided in New York. Two days before the court hearing, Zack found himself in handcuffs.

Each parent will argue for primary custody of the twins. Diandra wants the boys to be raised in California with her; Zack wants them with him in New York where the couple has lived for the last four years.

     Children of Michael Kirk2 Douglas and Diandra Douglas were:

                      i.    Cameron3 Douglas was born December 13, 1978 Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara County, California.
