He has been one of the brightest stars in Hollywood, a hard-charging actor whose intensity on the screen has been mirrored in his personal life. As Kirk Douglas has grown older-he turned 90 in December 2006-he has become less impetuous and more reflective. In this poignant and inspiring new memoir, Douglas contemplates what life is all about, weighing current events from his present frame of mind while summoning the passions of his younger days. Douglas is a born storyteller, and throughout Let's Face It he tells wonderful tales and shares favorite jokes and hard-won insights. In the book, he explores the mixed blessings of growing older and looks back at his childhood, his young adulthood, and his storied, glamorous, and colorful life and career in Hollywood. He tells delightful stories of the making of such films as Spartacus, Lust for Life, Champion, The Bad and the Beautiful, and many others. He includes anecdotes about his friends Frank Sinatra, Burt Lancaster, Lauren Bacall, Ronald Reagan, Ava Gardner, Henry Kissinger, Fred Astaire, Yul Brynner, John Wayne, and Johnny Cash. He reveals the secrets that have kept him and his wife, Anne, happily married for more than five decades, and talks fondly and movingly of times spent with his sons, Michael, Peter, Eric, and Joel, and his grandchildren.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/search/Kirk+Douglas">Kirk Douglas</a><a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Kirk Douglas.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/rss_tiny.gif" border="0" /></a><a href="itpc://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Kirk+Douglas.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/itunes_trans.png" border="0" /></a> | <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/search/Michael+Douglas">Michael Douglas</a><a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Michael Douglas.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/rss_tiny.gif" border="0" /></a><a href="itpc://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Michael+Douglas.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/itunes_trans.png" border="0" /></a> | <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/search/Catherine+Zeta+Jones">Catherine Zeta Jones</a><a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Catherine Zeta Jones.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/rss_tiny.gif" border="0" /></a><a href="itpc://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Catherine+Zeta+Jones.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/itunes_trans.png" border="0" /></a> | <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/search/Frank+Sinatra">Frank Sinatra</a><a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Frank Sinatra.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/rss_tiny.gif" border="0" /></a><a href="itpc://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/Frank+Sinatra.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/itunes_trans.png" border="0" /></a> | <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/search/classic+movie+stars">classic movie stars</a><a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/classic movie stars.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/rss_tiny.gif" border="0" /></a><a href="itpc://www.blogtalkradio.com/rss/tag/classic+movie+stars.rss"><img src="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/img/itunes_trans.png" border="0" /></a> <br /><br />
