Abstract:

Well into his 80s, with speech slurred by a stroke, Kirk Douglas remains a magnetic onscreen presence as he and son Michael reminisce about their lives and careers in this simple yet highly entertaining documentary. The elder Douglas suggests the family's story is a microcosm of America, one that reflects "the tragedy of failure, and the tragedy of success." The film covers the grandeur of Kirk's career, from deserting the studio system to produce his own films, and Michael's personal triumphs as a producer and star, as the two of them banter during joint interview sessions--sentimentally capturing a portrait of a towering Hollywood figure, and the son who successfully labored to escape his shadow.
