Actor from the USA.
William Franklin Beadle, Jr. is his true name.
When Paramount Pictures first became aware of William Holden, he was enrolled at a Pasadena college. He became a “star” in 1939 when he portrayed boxer Joe Bonaparte in the movie “Golden Boy,” which was his first important role. Then came parts in movies like “Hell in the Sky,” “Sunset Boulevard,” “Sabrina,” “The Bridge on the River Kwai,” and “Paris When It’s Hot.”
On November 16, 1981, the management entered William Holden’s flat and discovered the actor’s lifeless body in a pool of blood. Holden must have fallen on the carpeting and hit his right temple on the corner of the nightstand, based on the body’s position and the items in the area. It had been a few days since the actor passed away.
Some authorities claim that William Holden passed away on November 12, 1981. He tried to staunch the bleeding with paper towels before he passed away since he was too inebriated to call for assistance. A script was close to the body, the TV was on, and there was an empty vodka bottle on the table. His remains were burned, and the ashes were cast into the sea. It was his last testament.
