Publisher Description

As screen icon Kirk Douglas approaches his 100th birthday, he and his wife of sixty-two years, Anne Buydens, share secrets to longevity in life and love told through candid commentary and priceless correspondence between each other and famous friends from celebrities to world leaders, spanning almost a century.

This is the story of film legend and centenarian Kirk Douglas and his wife of nearly sixty-three years, Anne. Their stories of enduring love and a lifetime led on the world stage unfold through the couple’s own candid commentary and priceless letters from their personal archives.

Carefully maintained by Anne over the course of more than six decades and never before made public, the correspondence includes details of their courtship and marriage, set against the backdrop of Kirk’s screen triumphs in films ranging from Lust for Life to Paths of Glory and Spartacus.

Through the letters themselves and Kirk and Anne’s words, never-before-told stories emerge about the legendary figures they knew so well, including Lauren Bacall, Frank Sinatra, Burt Lancaster, Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne, the Kennedys, and the Reagans; fascinating first-hand accounts of film sets and star-studded dinner parties; and tales of travel to over forty countries as goodwill ambassadors.

Complemented by previously unpublished photos, Kirk and Anne candidly details the adventurous, oftentimes comic, and poignant reality behind the glamour of a Hollywood life, as only a couple of sixty-two years (and counting) could tell it.

“Kirk’s actor son Michael’s two grown children voice the work, a first-time narration for both. They are enthusiastic, sincere, and precise in their deliveries.”
