Kirk Douglas stars as the brilliant artist Vincent van Gogh. Based on the novel of the same name by Irving Stone, the film follows van Gogh’s life, showing how he became a painter, his life during the height of his career, and, ultimately, his death. Art consumed this Dutch painter, and this movie portrays this fact beautifully.
Filmed on location in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, Lust For Life was not a success at the box office, but it did earn four Academy Award nominations with one win going to Anthony Quinn, who plays Paul Gauguin.
