William Holden-Williamson/Frazetta-1951

Here, from an issue of MOVIE LOVE from 1951, is the story of actor William Holden's career up to that point...cleaned up just a tad. The attraction here, though, is the early collaboration by Al Williamson and Frank Frazetta, both of whom just passed in recent months and both of whom were eulogized as the very best in the business. As for Holden, in spite of a well-publicized drinking problem, he made the transition to a successful character actor as he got older and, perhaps more importantly, became a proactive advocate for wild animal preservation in Africa.
