|36.1||Burt Lancaster: Daring to Reach||The life and career of the Oscar-winning actor Burt Lancaster is explored. Lancaster went from street-wise tough boy to an art-collecting liberal-activist--from circus-acrobat hunk to Academy Award winner. A stint in the Army introduced Burt to acting and led him to Hollywood where his first release, The Killers (1946), propelled him to stardom at age 32. He took control of his own career and seldom faltered. Upon his death in 1994, four-time Academy Award-nominated Lancaster was acknowledged as one of the greatest stars in Hollywood. Lancaster's films include Westerns, costume epics and serious contemporary dramas.
