Personal Quote:

I never did feel there was anything mystic about Hollywood. I never really did like it.


The only time the three Holts appeared together was in 1946 in a CBS radio program entitled "All-Star Theatre", a country flavored show featuring Western music by Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage with a dramatic sketch. The Holts played father, son, and daughter. See more »


His on screen character usually wore gloves since Tim believed this was a realistic view of a "real" working cowboy.
