Douglas lands Film Society honour

The Oscar winner, 65, will be the guest of honour at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 37th annual Chaplin Award Gala, where Hanks was feted in 2009.

The award, named after its first recipient Charlie Chaplin, will be presented to the star on 24 May (10), when Douglas’ friends and colleagues will gather at New York’s Alice Tully Hall to pay tribute to his acting career, which has spanned more than four decades.

Film Society board co-chair Liz Swig says, “It will be an honour to add Michael Douglas to our list of past honorees, I am really looking forward to creating another fabulous evening as we celebrate Michael’s career achievements among friends and fans.”

Other former recipients include: Alfred Hitchcock, Laurence Olivier, Elizabeth Taylor, Martin Scorsese, Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep.
