Happy Birthday to Nancy Olson!

Wonderful Nancy Olson turns 88 today.

Olson was born July 14, 1928, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Whether she was the leading lady to William Holden (four times), John Wayne, or Randolph Scott, or starring for Disney, she always brought a big ray of sunshine to her films.

Best wishes for a very happy day and year to a wonderful lady!

I hope she publishes an autobiography - would like to read her life story and here some of anecdotes from her time in Hollywood and at Disney.

I would also love for her to publish a memoir. I loved her and William Holden's chemistry so much, I wish they had done more films together. FORCE OF ARMS is a nicely done romantic wartime romance. A lovely actress!

I agree, I'd love to read a book by Nancy Olson! There are so many interesting aspects to her life.

FORCE OF ARMS is wonderful!

Best wishes,
