The Streets of San Fran­cisco 1972-76 Launched his ca­reer as In­spec­tor Steve Keller in the TV drama. He left the show after he won the Best Pic­ture Os­car as the pro­ducer of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Ro­manc­ing the Stone 1984 This ro­man­tic com­edy saw Dou­glas star along­side Kath­leen Turner and Danny De­vito, who teamed up again in the se­quel The Jewel of the Nile in 1986.

Fa­tal At­trac­tion 1988 Mar­ried New York lawyer Dan Gal­lagher pays the price for his in­fi­delity when his brief af­fair with pub­lisher Alex (Glenn Close) turns vi­o­lent.

Wall Street 1988 ‘Greed is good’ en­tered the vo­cab­u­lary as Dou­glas’ per­for­mance as leg­endary fi­nancier Gordon Gekko earned him the Academy Award for Best Ac­tor in 1988.

Ba­sic In­stinct 1992 In one of the big­gest movies of the 1990s, Dou­glas played po­lice de­tec­tive Nick Cur­ran, al­though Sharon Stone stole the show as femme fa­tale Cather­ine Tramell.

Be­hind the can­de­labra 2013 Dou­glas won an Emmy for his per­for­mance as the flam­boy­ant pi­anist Lib­er­ace in the film about the en­ter­tainer’s re­la­tion­ship with his as­sis­tant (Matt Da­mon).
