Michael Douglas

Congratulations to Michael Douglas, AFI Lifetime Achievement Awardee!

I first saw Michael on TV when I was five years old, on "the Streets of San Francisco" with Karl Malden. I watched him as a teenager in two of my favorite films, "Coma" and "Running." I loved him as Gordon Gekko and as Nick Curran. My wife is a fan of "the American President," "Disclosure" and "A Perfect Murder." I was mesmerized by his performances in "Basic Instinct," "Falling Down," and "the Game." One of my most favorite films of all time is "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." Thank you Michael for continuing to be a part of all of our lives...
