Every time we lose a celebrity, there will always be those who mourn. But it's especially emotional when the lost celebrity is a force like Kirk Douglas, who may well be the very last of the stars from the golden age of film. Douglas—born in New York city in 1916 as Issur Danielovitch—lived out an acting career most only aspire to.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Douglas.
