Personal Quote:

Because I could dance my folks went through hell so I could be in movies. But I didn't dance in pictures. I cried! At one point I had polio, which I believe was a result of the stress I felt in the studios. My parents broke up. My father resented that I was paid so much more than he was. When it was all over there was no money. See more »

Trivia:

Was working on his autobiography, "The Holts of Hollywood" at the time of his death. See more »
