Kirk Douglas, the son of a ragman, grew up in poverty in a small town in Up.0 He has only one dream: to be an actor. He then worked as a waiter and fair wrestler to pay for his studies and join the academy of drama. After small roles, he was revealed in 1949 in "The Champion" where he camped a boxer. Kirk followed up the roles and played the most famous actors of the time. A sacred monster of Hollywood cinema, he won only an honorary Oscar in 1996.
