The iconic actor Kirk Douglas, who celebrated his 99th birthday Dec. 9, was honored on the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

In a brief address, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) called Douglas a “great American” and said he had “a long history of charitable giving and philanthropy.” Most recently, Douglas donated $15 million to an Alzheimer’s care facility in Los Angeles.

Cohen also said the recent film Trumbo, about Spartacus screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, enlightened him about Douglas’ role in challenging the Hollywood blacklist in the 1950s.
