Photograph caption dated March 31, 1954 reads, "William Holden and his wife, Brenda Marshall, pose happily with the new addition to their family. His name is Oscar. Yes, that's statuette which Bill won for his performance in Paramount's 'Stalag 17.' Bill, who has been spending most of his time acknowledging congratulatory wires, is now working in film, 'The Country Girl.' After completing the movie, Bill and Brenda will spend a vacation in Florida." Here the Holdens are seen at their Toluca Lake home at 4701 Sancola Avenue.
