Nonagenarian Kirk Douglas received a house visit today from Warner Home Video’s Jeff Baker, who gave the actor copies of the “Kirk Douglas Drama Collection” DVD box set, which includes Vincente Minelli’s “Lust for Life” and “The Bad and the Beautiful,” and Michael Curtiz’ “Young Man with a Horn.”
The net proceeds from the set will go to the Motion Picture & Television Fund; Douglas also accepted a check from Baker on behalf of the MPTF representing the first installment. Douglas and his wife Anne are major benefactors of the MPTF; the org provides health, social and financial services to entertainment industry professionals.
The collection, available tomorrow, also includes “Before I Forget,” a one-man play Douglas wrote and starred in.
