Lonely are the Brave was Kirk Douglas' favorite film of all the ones he made

And mine too.

Based on a novel by the great Edward Abbey. Douglas loved the book and spearheaded the film, recruting equally talented writer Dalton Trumbo for the screenplay. It is about trying to live a life of freedom in an increasingly ordered world. A beautiful movie, made in 1962 in New Mexico.

12. My favorite, as well.

A good showcase for his liberal principles. Especially going up against Adolphe Menjou, a fairly nasty right-winger.

9. In these times,

glorifying eco-terrorism wouldn't fly. You can make a bloody Quentin Tarantino mass murder , but you can't have a film where the heroes burn bulldozers.

6. He also played a really good scumbag crime lord in "Out Of The Past"

One of my favorite noir movies . . .
