5 Movies to Watch For Kirk Douglas’ 100th Birthday — According to Kirk Douglas

Kirk Douglas turns 100 on Friday, and we’re celebrating with his five greatest performances — courtesy of the film legend himself.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Douglas listed “The Bad and the Beautiful,” “Spartacus,” “Ace in the Hole,” “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” and “Lonely Are the Brave” as just a few of his favorites.

The actor praised Billy Wilder as a “brilliant director” for “Ace in the Hole,” noted that his friend Frank Sinatra was jealous of his musical turn in “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” and felt generally pleased with his own performance in “The Bad and the Beautiful.”

Watch trailers for each below, and get ready for some serious weekend binge-watching.
