RIP Kirk Douglas

This is lovely!
“This homage to the actor, in which multiple Douglases do verbal battle with each other, was created by British filmmakers Tim Watts and David Stoten, and would go on to win the 1994 BAFTA for best animated short. It was also nominated for a best animated short Oscar, and with a runtime of 1-minute-56-seconds (with credits), it ranks among the shortest animated films ever nominated for that honor. Frank Gorshin handled the vocal duties as Douglas.”
