Happy Birthday William Holden and Anne Shirley

Happy Birthday to William Holden (1918 - 1981) and Anne Shirley (1918 - 1993).
Holden is one of my favorite actors and some of my favorite films of his include Sunset Boulevard, Stalag 17, Golden Boy, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Union Station and The Wild Bunch.
Some of Shirley's films that are my favorites include Government Girl with Olivia de Havilland, Stella Dallas, Murder My Sweet, and Vigil in the Night with Carole Lombard.

And by some twist of fate, not only were these two born on the same day, but the same year too.

William Holden - the older I get the better he gets! The man never turned in a bad performance and was modest, to boot (and darn cute, too). Of course, Sunset Blvd. is tops with me, but that dance with Kim Novak in Picnic? SWOON!

I was just watching Picnic last night... Happy birthday, Bill!

Oh, and that scared me at first.... I think you made a typo on Anne Shirley's death. It says 1933, but it should be 1993, right?

Thanks Desiree for catching that about Anne.
