When Kirk Douglas, several years ago, happened to hear that we were putting together a documentary on the friendship between Ernest Hemingway and Gary Cooper, he got in touch and told us about a letter he had written to Gary Cooper.
Gracious and modest gentleman that he is, Mr. Douglas enquired if we had any interest in the letter. When we responded immediately in the affirmative, he then offered to read the letter on camera for the documentary.
What appears in The True Gen is an edited version. Here, in our tribute to Mr. Kirk Douglas on his 102nd birthday, is Mr. Douglas reading the letter in full, unedited.
From all of us at Transmultimedia, Happy Birthday, Kirk Douglas.
We shan't soon see your like again.
