Commemoration of the Life of Kirk Douglas (1916-2020)

Kirk Douglas and Lauren BacallArchdruid: We meet to mark the passing of a man... always flawed, as we all are. Always determined, sometimes brave, very dimpled and above all.... famous.

Charlii: Just an old actor, wasn't he? Does anyone care?

Archdruid: Well, I'm sad, I guess....

Hnaef: I'm sad, I guess.

Burton: No, I'm sad, I guess.

Young Keith: I'm sad, I guess.

All: I'm sad, I guess...

Continues for days. 

Want to support this blog? Want a good laugh? (or to shudder at death at any rate? Then here's two ways you can keep the Archdruid in doilies...
If you want someone to share the terrors of death while making you laugh, we have "A Hint of Death in the Morning Air" - 97 poems to make you wonder, laugh or shake your head sadly. At only £1 on Kindle. Or if you want to know what the people in the pews really think, and you prefer your words printed on paper, why not try "Writes of the Church"?  The letters to the Church magazine the vicar really didn't need.

  1. That he survived to 103 is a miracle given the sometimes shortened lives of screen actors. And he demonstrated the benefits of not kow towing to those who persecuted the media for communist sympathies in the days of hysteria and used someone in that category to write the screen play for Spartacus. A long career in action movies and outlived many of his fellow actors.
