The tragic story of the life and death of artist Vincent Van Gogh, in a film directed by Vincente Minnelli.
Lust for Life (1956)
Kirk won his third Best Actor Oscar nomination for this film, directed, like The Bad and the Beautiful, by Vicente Minelli. “Playing Vincent van Gogh shook up my theory of what acting is all about. To me, acting is creating an illusion, not losing yourself in the character. But I was close to getting lost in the character of Van Gogh.” Ragman’s Son, 266
