TIM HOLT, CO-SIGNED BY: HARRY HARNESS
Western actor Tim Holt signed this contract in 1951 to buy a thoroughbred horse named Rogue River, which he apparently intended to use in his movies, for $1,000.
Contract signed "Harry Harness" as Seller and "Tim Holt" as Purchaser. Black ink notations in unknown hand. 6 pages, 8 ½ x 13, single-sided, thin paper. April 16, 1951. Holt signed this conditional contract of sale to buy a horse named Rogue River from Harry Harness of El Cajon, California for $1,000. Rogue River was described as a "Thoroughbred chestnut, with 4 white sox [sic] and irregular blaze, 9 years old...". Under the terms of Holt's contract with RKO Radio Pictures, the studio would pay him daily rental fees of $25 if he used his own horse in his movies. Holt starred in six movies in 1951, the year that he signed this contract: Gunplay, His Kind of Woman, Hot Lead, Overland Telegraph, Pistol Harvest and Saddle Legion. Actor Holt (1918-1973), was the son of actor Jack Holt, who appeared with him in his memorable role (as Bob Curtin) in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948). Tim, who had begun his career as a child actor, went on to star in his own series of "B" Westerns, in which he was the "fastest draw" in the movies (Holt could draw his revolver in five frames of film - slightly over one-sixth of a second). His other notable films include Stella Dallas (1937), Stagecoach (1939), Swiss Family Robinson (1940), My Darling Clementine (1946) and This Stuff'll Kill Ya! (1971). Holt was also seen on television in an episode of The Virginian (1969). Lightly toned, stained and creased. Staple holes at top edge. Light tears at bottom edge of title page. Light discoloration on some pages. Otherwise in fine condition.
