"Most of Holden’s romances with his leading ladies ended with the completion of their movies together. Not so with Audrey Hepburn. To Holden, she embodied everything that he admired in a woman, and she was young. Bill had been an outspoken advocate of vasectomy and in later life he claimed never to have had regrets. But once, he did. At an evening at the Encore, a jazz nightclub on the Sunset Strip, Audrey tapped a spoon on her glass and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, I have an announcement." She turned her eyes to the beaming Ferrer and said, "Mel and I are engaged to be married." Everyone at the table greeted the announcement joyfully. Except Bill Holden. He remained grim-faced for the duration of the evening." Bob Thomas of The Milwaukee Journal +
