Announcing the Fourth Golden Boy Blogathon!

We're baaaaack! It's a bit short notice, but in just a month, The Wonderful World of Cinema, The Flapper Dame, and I will be hosting the Fourth Golden Boy Blogathon: A William Holden Celebration! For three days in April, we will be celebrating one of Hollywood's most indelible (and, let's face it, gorgeous) talents.

The rules are as follows:
1) You can write about anything relating to Mr. Holden: his films, his relationships, his work in wildlife preservation...

2) However, we will only allow a maximum of two people per topic.

3) We also ask that you limit yourself to a maximum of two entries.

4) When you join, please give us the name of your blog, the URL, and your topic(s). You can comment here, on Virginie's blog, or on Emily's.

5) And finally, grab a banner, spread the word, and we'll see you in April!

  1. I just want to make a couple of comments. I never saw WILLIAM HOLDEN in any movies until around 1984(a few years after his passing) and I ended up seeing a dozen of his movies in just a few years. My two favorites are SUNSET BOULEVARD and PICNIC. Nancy Olson, who played Betty in Boulevard and Kim Novak(Picnic) are still with us. Kim had two very attractive suitors in that movie , Hal(Holden) and Alan(Cliff Robertson).

  2. Hi there, can I review S.O.B (1980), Holdens last film? So glad you holding this again… Gill from Realweegiemidget Reviews

  3. I want to add to my above post that KIM NOVAK is 86 and NANCY OLSON will be 91 later this year. I don't have a blog but that would be a good topic-the movies that Bill(as he was called) and Nancy did together. I believe they did at least 4 movies together.

  4. I understand you have dominion over day two. I was a little behind schedule, for me, but I got it done this morning.

  5. I love all of Bill's movies. He was so versatile, gave quality performances. He will always be my favorite actor, loved him.
