Tagged: Danny Devito, Scalawag, Kirk Douglas
In 1973, at the very beginning of Danny DeVito's career, he was cast in Scalawag—a largely forgotten movie directed by, and starring, Kirk Douglas which received, at best, lukewarm reviews. No-one was prouder of the film, however, than DeVito's mother, Julia, and soon after watching it she sent a letter to Douglas to thank him. Julia passed away in 1987; the next year, Kirk Douglas reprinted her charming letter in his autobiography.
