The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)-David Lean directs William Holden, Jack Hawkins and Ann Sears!

William Holden as Shears in my favorite war movie David Lean’s Oscar winner for Best Picture and Director The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) manages to have a brief romance with a nurse played by Ann Sears after his escape from the Japanese POW camp. Jack Hawkins as Major Warden, a commando leader, is probably more impressed with Holden’s skill in engineering this romance than he is with the escape from the prison camp and drafts Shears into his commando team– in Major Warden’s words- Good Show!
