Michael Douglas muses on his most memorable films

It wasn't his acting skills, but his driving skills that earned Michael Douglas his first on-camera role.

As a young man visiting his famous father on location in Israel, Douglas was tapped to drive a Jeep in 1966's "Cast a Giant Shadow."

"I was a pretty good driver and hit my mark," he said. "So that was the extent of my first (appearance) on screen."

Douglas, 64, has gone on to star in or produce more than three dozen films over his 40-year career. He was honored for his work this month with the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award, and the ceremony is scheduled to be broadcast Sunday on cable's TV Land.

The Academy Award winner sat down with The Associated Press to reflect on the most memorable movies and moments of his career.
