“Golden Holden.” The Film’s of William Holden (1918-1981). The screen’s quintessential leading man of mid century American films. In his most prestigious role yet, Holden was loaned to Producer Sol Lesser for the film “Our Town” (1940). A theatrical sensation in prewar 1938 winning the Pulitzer Prize for playwright Thornton Wilder, this story of a young couple in Grovers Corner looking into the future with a narrator and presented without scenery was idealistic, homespun, warm and ultimately filled with some sadness. Recreating her role as Emily, Martha Scott almost missed out due to a poor “GWTW” screen test for Melanie. She went on to win an Oscar nomination, one of the films 6 including Best Picture. The still relatively inexperienced Holden played George. Critics, particularly the NBOR which awarded him Best Actor appreciated his fine performance. Surrounding the young couple were Stuart Erwin, Fay Bainter, Beulah Bondi, Thomas Mitchell, Guy Kibbee and also from Broadway Frank Craven as the narrator. Not quite the screen sensation it had been on Broadway, a popular film in 1940, it is today the best known version of this theater classic which is much beloved and regularly revived. For Holden it was another step up in a very busy career in year two. And for Scott who took a little time to warm to her costar and who unlike most of the cast was relatively inexperienced, it was the start of a short lived starring career in movies before a lifetime of acclaim often on stage and television and as a character actress. A moving film, but with its tragic ending substituted for a Hollywood happy ending, effective but not as showy or poignant as it might have been. #williamholden #goldenholden #1940 #100years #1918 #illinois #oldhollywood #classichollywood #midcentury #vintagehollywood #silverscreen #oldmovies #turnerclassicmovies #Warnerarchive #bnw #Mensstyle #cinephile #cinephilecommunity #leadingman #marthascott #unitedartists #vintagemen #Vintagestyle #suits #ourtown #broadway #smalltown

Today’s preferred viewing:
The sweeping biblical epic “Ben-Hur”. This is one of the most visually striking and beautiful films I’ve ever seen. Since I’ve been a very small child I’ve loved this film and it’s cast. Charlton Heston was absolutely wonderful and has always been one of my favorites. This movie is a long haul but it’s worth every second of watching!
Wonderful film!
