Douglas Sirk Facts
In 1980 the organizers of the Cannes Film Festival wanted him to be President of the Jury. The telegram sent to their Hollywood office was to read, "Request Douglas Sirk for jury". However, a typo and an extra comma resulted in it reading, "Request Douglas, Kirk for jury". Kirk Douglas became the President of the 1980 jury.

Far from Heaven (2002) was intended as a tribute to Sirk's films, which are also said to have been the original influence for TV soap operas.

Director John Waters has cited him as one of his greatest influences.
