William Holden movies

Unread postby yogi » Fri Feb 02, 2007 6:23 pm

I did not realize how many GREAT, GREAT movies this guy starred in.

Guys, we could do worse than keep a look out for Bill Holden movies in our must-see list.....

* Sabrina
* The Bridge on the River Kwai ##
*The Towering Inferno
*Streets of Laredo
*Network ##
*Sunset Boulevard ##
*Stalag 17
*The Wild Bunch ##
*The Devil's Brigade
*Love is a many Splendored Thing
*S.O.B.

## denotes movies ranked in AFI's Top 100

It seems this guy never gets mentioned with the Hollywood greats but he should be.

Not too shabby a career!

I've never seen a Holden movie where I wasn't completely impressed with the way he dominates the screen. His roles in <i>Sunset Boulevard</i> and <i>The Bridge on the River Kwai</i> show what an actor who really knows his craft can do (although in both movies, his co-stars (Gloria Swanson and Alec Guinness, respectively) were no slouches either).
