Tim Holt Facts
In the late 1950s he managed a 1400-acre dude ranch, and to promote it he hosted "The Tim Holt Western Theatre," a Saturday morning television series on KOCO-TV (Channel 5) in Oklahoma City, which telecast many of his western films.

During World War II Holt was a member of the Army Air Corps and was wounded - ironically, on the last day of the war - in a bombing raid over Tokyo, for which he received a Purple Heart.

John Wayne and he were good friends ever since their Stagecoach (1939) days. Wayne visited Tim at the Shawnee Hospital shortly before his death. While living in Malibu years earlier, Wayne and Holt would practice shooting and different styles of wearing their holsters.
