Academy Collaborations: Kirk Douglas and Lauren Bacall in 'Young Man with a Horn'

Every week we would like to look back at one of our most recognizable and celebrated alumni collaborations in history.

This Thursday we start off with two of our most legendary alumni: Kirk Douglas as Rick Martin and Lauren Bacall as Amy North in “Young Man with a Horn”. The film premiered in 1951 and has touched many souls ever since.

Fun fact: Lauren Bacall and Kirk Douglas became lifelong friends after Lauren offered Kirk her uncles jacket after she saw him shivering in the freezing New York winter while they both attended The Academy.
