TCM Star of the Month for April is William Holden

Mar 26, 2018 | Uncategorized |

 TCM Star of the month for April is William Holden. If he was still with us, he would be 100 years old on April 17th.

To commemorate his centennial year, TCM will show 34 films Mondays in April. His long-time girlfriend Stephanie Powers (Hart to Hart) will discuss 15 of his films with Ben Mankiewicz.

Two notable omissions from the tribute are Sabrina and The Country Girl.
