Burton Stephen “Burt” Lancaster
(November 2, 1913 – October 20, 1994)
This would’ve been the 100th birthday of one of my favorite movie stars, Mr. Burt Lancaster.
He’s seen here, with Kirk Douglas in the background, in John Sturges’ Gunfight At The O.K. Corral (1957). Gunfight is a flawed film — for instance, Lancaster didn’t like the script — that still has a certain magic about it.
