Time for PreGamers to sound off on their favorite Kirk Douglas roles. My favorite was "The Big Carnival" also known as "Ace in the Hole." He was a newspaperman who was covering a cave in where a miner was trapped underground.
He crawled down and talked to the man daily and gave reports to his newspaper. As word spread people began to descend on this little community - quickly literally becoming a circus like atmosphere. (A boon for their local economy and for the newspaper reporter who gave out daily missives.)
As the movie played out it soon became apparent that the poor man trapped underground was worth more to the community and to the newspaperman if he stayed trapped. I won't reveal any more about the film but I guarantee you will enjoy it ! Classic Kirk Douglas ! RIP
