Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas offered ET an encouraging health update about his Oscar-winning son, Michael Douglas, who's battling throat cancer.
Michael's appetite is back and he's starting to feel feisty again, Kirk told us at a black-tie dinner gala paying tribute to Harrison Ford on Friday.
At the event Harrison's longtime love, Calista Flockhart, watched on as Kirk presented Harrison with a special honor: the Santa Barbara International Film Festival's fifth annual Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film.
The 26th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival takes place January 27 through February 6, 2011.
