This April marks William Holden’s centenary and Flickin’ Out is commemorating the occasion in a big way! On Twitter, I’ve been chronicling his filmography with behind-the-scenes facts about the making of his films and their impact on his career.
I’d love for you to be a part of the celebration! Use the hashtag #Holden100 to be a part of the conversation on Twitter or Instagram. I will also have guest columns from bloggers about his work all throughout the year. I am still taking submissions so if you’d like to be a part of this, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout the celebration, I’ll be hosting livetweets of his films as well. I kicked it off with Born Yesterday on January 1st and on January 16, it was Father is a Bachelor. The next livetweet will be January 27th for The Wild Bunch, the groundbreaking western that revitalized Holden’s career. That airs on TCM at 11:45 PM ET.
To kick things off here on the blog, let’s revisit the podcast episode of Flickin’ Out featuring Wrong Reel and Cinema Crossroads’ Julia Ricci discussing Holden’s work:
I look forward to discussing William Holden all year long and hope you join the conversation about one of cinema’s great leading men!
