The Golden Boy Blogathon is here! Come celebrate William Holden with us!

banner 3

I was so impatient for this event to finally start! But after almost 3 months of patience, it’s finally here! The Golden Boy Blogathon: A William Holden Celebration is the occasion for us, bloggers, to honour this wonderful actor who would have been 98 on April 17, 2016. The events starts today and will take an end on Holden’s birthday.

We know that Holden was a great actor, but, somehow, he doesn’t seem to be as much celebrated as some others like James Stewart or Cary Grant. That’s why we are here today to make that change. Wherever you are, this is for YOU William!

Bloggers (those who participate), once your article is published, I invite you to submit it here in the comment section. Don’t forget to provide me the link! You can also send it to me via e-mail:, Twitter: @Ginnie_SP or by messaging The Wonderful World of Cinema Facebook Page. I will add your entry to the roster when I’ll receive it.

Readers (and bloggers), make sure to take a look at all the wonderful entries written by more than 20 talented writers who always make me proud of being a member of the film bloggers community. I’m sure you’ll love it!

Even Bill says so:
