Closer - 2.13.23 William Holden : The Women Who Tried to Save HimRegular price $6.99
With roles in Sabrina, Sunset Boulevard and an Oscar for Stalag 17, William Holden was among the hottest stars of the 1950s. But his good looks and deft movie work hid his secret insecurity and nerves so bad that he would drink alcohol for breakfast just to survive. Along the way, several of his costars including Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly fell for him but none could stop his slide. "He was always trying to get help," said his last girlfriend Hart to Hart star Stephanie Powers, who shares her sweetest memories of the man she called her "soul mate" with Closer. Also inside this issue: A roundup of the naughtiest movies from Hollywood's pre-ratings days featuring Bette Davis, Cary Grant and Clark Gable among other future stars; a look back at the too-short life of silent film star Rudolph Valentino and Marie Osmond's thoughts on living your best life.
