Emotional Michael Douglas was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as his proud father and colleague screenwriter Kirk watched.
A player, known for films such as Wall Street, Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct, was recognized for his 50-year career in showbusiness on Tuesday.
Kirk, who will pass 102 in December, is a Hollywood star of the golden age that appears in films such as Spartacus. He sat on a wheelchair, which was away from the star union of his son, as well as his own, which was proclaimed in 1960.
The veteran actor was impressed by the fan when Michael gave the memorial.
Michael, before revealing his star, said: "My father is here. In the month of Kirk he becomes 102 years old. You took the one you took under the age of 80 years ago."
He turned to his father and said, "I know that none of your sons celebrates the 50th anniversary in business, it means to me that you are here today.
"I thank you for your advice, your inspiration and I will simply say with all my heart, so I am proud to be your son."
He also watched the celebration of Douglas's wife, the great actress Catherine Zeta-Jones and their son Dylan.
Douglas described Zeto Jones, whom he married in 2000 as "the love of my life".
He added, "Thank you, dear to you for your support, love and patience. By the way, in the second week we celebrate our anniversary, our 18th anniversary, so I thank you for the 18 best years of my life, sweetheart."
Douglas celebrates her 50th anniversary in showbusiness and is reflected in her successful career in 1987 winning the best acting academy for her performance of Gordon Gekk.
He said he was "happy to be part of the classic Hollywood and the new Hollywood".
He said that, despite many changes, "there are traditions that are suffering. Traditions such as this ceremony are a collective thread that enables us to bow to those in every generation who create stories that move us.
"For me, the 2,000 stars built on these sidewalks are more than a brass honor. They represent real people, women and men who have been passionate about what they have done and about the fun of people all over the world."
Douglas's star was on the track of the famous number 2.648.
