Although he appeared in a number of classic films — John Ford's STAGECOACH and MY DARLING CLEMENTINE, Orson Welles' THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, and John Huston's TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE — Tim Holt is best known as the boyishly handsome star of some four dozen "B" Westerns made between 1940 and 1952. The son of popular silent-screen star Jack Holt, Tim worked in major and minor films alike but always returned to the humble Saturday-matinee horse operas he genuinely enjoyed making. His career is thoroughly and exhaustively chronicled in David Rothel's book, which presents fact-filled entries on every film and paints an accurate picture of Tim Holt the man via interviews conducted with his friends, family members, and co-workers. The book is illustrated with more than 200 rare photographs, including never-before-published family snapshots. Not only the career study of a popular star, TIM HOLT contributes a great deal to the history of Western movies and deserves a place in every film buff's personal reference library.
