Public officers and kin of Kirk Douglas have unveiled a brand new historic marker in his upstate New York birthplace to honor the Hollywood legend on his birthday.
The blue and yellow New York state historic marker was offered in Amsterdam on Sunday, the actor’s 102nd birthday. The signal will likely be erected close to the house the place he was born as Issur Danielovitch to Russian Jewish dad and mom on Dec. 9, 1916.
The marker says Douglas “Rose From Poverty To Seem In Over 90 Movies In Hollywood.”
Douglas was raised in Amsterdam, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of Albany.
He graduated from St. Lawrence College in northern New York and served within the U.S. Navy throughout World Battle II.
His prolonged movie profession included starring roles in “Lust for Life,” ”Spartacus” and “Seven Days In Might.”
