When one considers that those 6 nominations occurred over a period of just 12 years, it's rather remarkable. It reminds me of something Rosalind Russell wrote about her own nominations -- "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride!"

I love the celebrated actress Roslaind Russel's delightful biography that uses the quote from Auntie Mame:

"Rosalind Russell, Life Is A Banquet (and Most Poor Suckers Are Starving To Death").

Let Us Remember:

At the great age of 103, actor Kirk Douglas died
yesterday. He starred in Young Man With A Horn with Doris Day and Lauren Bacall.

Interesting he said at the height of his career in the 1950's: "I'm probably the most disliked actor in Hollywood". and followed with, "And I feel pretty good about it because that's me. I'm a pretty unlikable character".

This is consistent with Doris Day describing her time working on Young Man With A Horn as a miserable experience.

Kirk Douglas starred in Spartacus, Lust For Life, The Bad and The Beautiful, A Letter To Three Wives, and Detective Story.
