"The same evening I had dinner at Hedy Lamarr’s. Framed by mountains, her wooden house evoked her native Austria. There, on her terrace, which seemed to float over the canyon, she appeared, dressed in red, her black hair flowing. She was a vision of sensuality, with the nose upturned just enough to keep her from being too beautiful." - Jean Pierre Aumont (x)

"A few years ago, I stood on this stage with William Holden."

March 29, 1982 — While accepting an honorary Academy Award in recognition of her five decades on film, Barbara Stanwyck takes a moment to thank her close friend and costar William Holden, who had died four months prior. In 1939, Stanwyck—one of the most powerful performers in Hollywood—fought for Holden when Columbia chief Harry Cohn wanted the fledgling actor fired from the filming of Golden Boy, the movie that cemented Holden’s stardom and lent him his lifelong nickname.
