Jack Holt was a film land cowboy who had graduated from the range to the screen.

Shortly after high school, Holt accepted an opportunity to go to Alaska with an exploration
company. After an anticipated copper boom failed to materialize, he spent several years there as a
prospector, freight packer, fur trapper and mail carrier.

Returning to the Unites States he became a cowpuncher in Oregon. Tiring of ranch life, Holt drifted
to San Francisco in 1913 and took a stunt job with a motion picture company. There he caught the
eye of director William Nigh and was invited to Hollywood.

First cast as a menace, he soon was given heroic roles and, concentrating on westerns, he played the
leads in many motion picture versions of Zane Grey's novels.

In the silent movie era Holt worked with Tom Mix, Buck Jones and other onetime headliners.

Graduating from outdoor pictures, he starred in "Submarine" and "Flight." Talking pictures proved
to be no setback and starring roles kept coming his way.
