The details (from wikipedia)


Joel Douglas (born January 23, 1947) is an American film producer.


The second son of Kirk Douglas (born 1916) and Diana Dill (1923–2015), he was born one day after his mother's 24th birthday. His paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Gomel in Belarus (at that time a part of the Russian Empire). His mother was from Devonshire Parish, Bermuda; Douglas's maternal grandfather, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Melville Dill, served as Attorney General of Bermuda and was commanding officer of the Bermuda Militia Artillery.

Joel chose not to follow his father and older brother into acting, opting instead to work behind the camera, producing several films throughout the 1970s and '80s.

Much of Douglas' work has centered on projects involving his family, including acting as co-producer on The Jewel of the Nile and Romancing the Stone, being an assistant director on One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and in 2003, acting as associate producer on It Runs in the Family, which featured Kirk, Michael and Michael's son Cameron.

Joel Douglas has married four times. His first wife was Susan Jorgensen, whom he married in 1968. He married Judith Corso in 1975, then Patricia Reid-Douglas in 1986. His most recent marriage to Jo Ann Savitt, whom he married on 2 February 2004, lasted until her death on 21 November 2013. Savitt was the daughter of bandleader Jan Savitt and his wife Barbara Ann Stillwell Savitt, and the step-daughter of actor Steve Brodie, whom her mother remarried. This made Joel the son-in-law of Jan Savitt.
