(USA/1956—directed by Vincente Minnelli)

Vincente Minnelli’s lavishly colorful, widescreen biography of Vincent Van Gogh is powered by Kirk Douglas’s Oscar® nominated performance as the brilliant, tormented artist.

Though it shaped Van Gogh’s story to fit within the framework of a big-studio Hollywood blockbuster, the enduring popularity of Lust For Life – if not its absolute accuracy – is considered by many to be one of the principal factors that propelled Van Gogh’s art into America’s popular consciousness in the fifties.

Co-starring Anthony Quinn as Paul Gaugin, and James Donald as Vincent’s brother Theo. (122 minutes)
