Happy Birthday William Holden


As you know we can now be found tweeting away on Twitter, and Sarah has kindly set us a challenge - everyday we should try and relate something that happened on this day in history to Brighton. We have only been doing this for a couple of days and they are already rather tenuous, for example we have had the explosion of the Apollo 13 linked to a Fringe event being held in a Spaceship tent!

However today my tenuous link is too long to fit into 140 characters so the readers of the blog get to enjoy it as well as our Twitter followers, hoorah!

Today would have been William Holden's 91st birthday so I decided to see if I could do a six degrees of separation from him to Brighton, so here goes:
  1. William Holden starred in The Bridge on the River Kwai with
  2. Alec Guinness who appeared in Doctor Zhivago which also featured
  3. Tom Courtenay who is most well-known for playing the lead role in
  4. Billy Liar which was written by
  5. Keith Waterhouse who famously said that
  6. "Brighton looks as though it is a town helping the police with their enquiries"
Ta-da!
