Movie veteran Kirk Douglas is adamant he'll make the most of his vow renewal with his wife ANNE next year (04) - because it was such a rushed occasion the first time around.

The SPARTACUS star, who will celebrate his 50th wedding anniversary on 29 April (04) by walking down the aisle once more, is already planning the special celebration.

Anne notes, "We will need a year to plan for the party."

Kirk, father of OSCAR-winning actor Michael Douglas, adds, "I was in the middle of shooting 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA and on Saturday night we just flew up to Las Vegas, got married, saw Frank Sinatra at the SANDS and come home."
