100th birthday of Kirk Douglas is one for the books

December 9, 2016 GMT

Legendary actor and producer Kirk Douglas turns 100 today.

He’s celebrating by giving us a gift: his 12th book, this one written with his wife of 62 years, Anne Buydens Douglas. The website Deadline.com says the couple talk about their courtship and marriage and tell tales about the likes of Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck and Lucille Ball.

The book, “Kirk and Anne,” doesn’t come out until May. In the meantime, Douglas is having a birthday party with guests including Steven Spielberg, Don Rickles and, of course, son Michael.
