Douglas, who starred in "Spartacus," "Lust for Life" and dozens of other films, helped fatally weaken the blacklist against suspected Communists and reigned for decades as a Hollywood maverick and patriarch.

Douglas earned three Academy Award nominations but never won a competitive Oscar. He did, however, receive an honorary statuette from The Academy in 1996. Douglas was honoured with his Hollywood Walk of Fame star in February 1980.
