It was said of him that in more than seventy films, he never once gave a bad performance. He was a charming and unconventional man with a “wild streak” and a compulsion to test himself at every turn. At his peak he became a leading man of immense attractiveness who refused to take fame and adulation seriously while in his later years a weary cynicism seemed to reflect the reality of the world around him. William Holden’s achievements as an Academy-Award winning, internationally-acclaimed actor are revealed in clips from some of his best films, such as The Golden Boy, Born Yesterday, The Country Girl, Sunset Boulevard, Stalag 17, Sabrina, The Bridge On The River Kwai, The World Of Suzie Wong and Network. Also featured are on-camera interviews with actors Robert Wagner, Robert Mitchum, Cliff Robertson, Stefanie Powers, Glen Ford, Nancy Olson and Susan Strasberg and co-workers like Sidney Lumet, Robert Wise and Arthur Jacobson.
