This week we celebrate the 100th Birthday of American actor Kirk Douglas born on the 9th of Dec 1916. During a sixty-year acting career, the dimpled chin actor has appeared in over 90 movies, and in 1960 helped end the Hollywood Blacklist as portrayed more recently in the film Trumbo. He is among the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Aedín includes music from three of Kirk Douglas’s  hit films, The Bad and the Beautiful, Lust for Life and Spartacus. Plus hit songs from Into the Woods, Fiddler on the Roof, Avenue Q and Gigi
