"I'm Spartacus!" Those immortal words are perhaps most associated with Kirk Douglas, one of the biggest movie stars of his era and famed for movies like Spartacus and 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea — even though the lines were famously delivered by everyone else but him.

Douglas has passed away at 103, according to an Instagram post from his son, Michael Douglas. Michael lauded his father for his film legacy, his philanthropic work, and his love for his family.
