She made her film debut in 1941's Stick To Your Guns, billed as Jacqueline Holt in honor of her father, Western actor Jack Holt. From 1950-1951, Holt hosted a children's TV show, Panhandle Pete and Jennifer, which won a 1951 Peabody Award, and she also made guest appearances on several TV shows, including The Gabby Hayes Show (1956), Tales of Wells Fargo (several episodes, 1957-1959) and Perry Mason (1958). DURANT (1932-2005) starred as TV Sheriff Johnny Ringo (1959-1960). Formerly a featured singer with Tommy Dorsey's Orchestra, Durant wrote and performed his own theme song. An accomplished horseman and marksman, Durant was a natural for guest appearances on TV Westerns of the late 1950s, including multiple visits to Sergeant Preston of the Yukon and to Wagon Train. Other acting roles included a Twilight Zone episode and a starring role in the feature film She-Gods of Shark Reef (1958). Before acting and still in high school, Durant hosted his own radio program on KPRO in Riverside, California, signed with CBS and became a regular on shows like The Jack Benny Program, The Red Skelton Show and Shower of Stars (1950-1954) - he also played the Sands and Sahara in Las Vegas, headlined at the Hollywood Bowl and the Macomba nightclub. A stage veteran who made his Broadway debut in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), ARMSTRONG performed in over 80 films and 90 TV series before his retirement in 1991. Armstrong made a guest appearance in nearly every popular TV western of the 1950s and 1960s. He starred in T.H.E. Cat (1966-1967) and Friday the 13th: the Series (1987-1988). His first big screen role was in The Garden of Eden (1954), the last The Man in the Iron Mask (1998).
