Jack Holt Facts
Father of actors Jennifer Holt and Tim Holt, with the latter of whom he bit-played in John Huston's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948).

Cartoonist Chester Gould drew his comic-strip character Dick Tracy based on Holt's granite-jawed profile.

It is reported that he was cartoonist Al Capp's favorite actor, and Capp drew his bumbling detective character Fearless Fosdick to closely resemble Holt.
