Classic Movie: LUST FOR LIFE

This season's Classic Movie series, "Around the World with Classic Movies," features six films from the 1930s to the 1970s, set in other lands.

Kirk Douglas, who celebrated his 101st birthday on 2017, played tortured artistic genius Vincent Van Gogh in Vincente Minelli’s 1956 classic LUST FOR LIFE.

Van Gogh’s  obsession with painting, combined with mental illness, propels him through an unhappy life full of failures and unrewarding relationships. He fails at being a preacher. He fails in his relationships with women. He earns some respect among his fellow painters, especially Paul Gauguin, but he does not get along with them. He only manages to sell one painting in his lifetime. The one constant good in his life is his brother Theo, who is unwavering in his moral and financial support.

Anthony Quinn co-stars as Paul Gauguin, with James Donald as Theo Van Gogh. The film is not rated and runs 102 minutes.
