Tim Holt and John F. Callahan

 Charles John "Tim" Holt III (February 5, 1919 – February 15, 1973) was an American actor. He was a popular Western star during the 1940s and early 1950s, appearing in forty-six B westerns released by RKO Pictures.

"In a career spanning more than four decades, Holt is best remembered for his roles in the films The Magnificent Ambersons (1942) and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948).”


Mr. Holt died of bone cancer at age 54. Mr. Callahan (from whom I inherited and recently unearthed this set of 18 8” x 10”, double-sided, hole-punched collectable movie-star-publicity-swag items of which this is #17 in a series of posts there upon) died of bone cancer at age 67.

Here’s a link to a really good blog article on Tim Holt’s RKO westerns. It makes me want to watch some of them.

Just for laughs, here's a photo of John and myself.
Compare and contrast John F. Callahan, and Tim Holt, taken when he was about the same as as John in this photo.
