Kirk Douglas: Sheds tears with son Michael Douglas' ice cream gift
On Sunday night, at the close of the final night of his one-man show, an ice-cream cone Michael Douglas presented to his father Kirk Douglas, brought the movie veteran to tears.
When the Wall Street star hit the stage at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City, California, the gift may have seemed odd, but it was a huge, symbolic gesture for his father.
Kirk Douglas, during the show, revealed that his father never paid much attention to him, until one day he chose to attend his son's first acting appearance in a kindergarten play.
Kirk Douglas' dad never praised his son for his acting skills - but he bought the young Kirk an ice-cream cone.
This 92-year-old Hollywood legend revealed the cone was his "personal Oscar" which spurred him on to become an actor.
