Actor. Born Charles John Holt in Fordham, New York, he was a popular leading man in both silent and sound films. In 1914, he went to California, picked up some stunt and bit part assignments in films, making his debut in "Salomy Jane" (1914). His rugged masculinity on screen performances soon caught much attention and he was cast in many action dramas. His over 180 credits include "The Claw" (1918), "Submarine" (1928), "Crash Donovan" (1936), "Northwest Rangers" (1942), "They Were Expendable" (1945) and "King of the Bullwhip" (1950). At the outbreak of the Second World War, he entered the US Army at the age of 54, serving at the request of General George C. Marshall as a horse buyer for the cavalry. He was also the father of actor Tim Holt, actress Jennifer Holt and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He died of a heart attack in Los Angeles, California, at age 62. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
