JENNIFER HOLT'S FIRST ROLE
6 July 2004 | by frontrowkid2002See all my reviews

Jennifer Holt's first role on screen was in Stick To Your Guns. Billed as Jacqueline Holt for the only time in her career, a possible attempt to cash in on her famous father, Jack Holt, she did not care for the billing. In one scene, where she is riding with the posse, her saddle cinch becomes unloosened and she was in danger of falling off and being trampled. She was rescued by character actor Tom London who quickly transferred her onto his horse. Of course this scene does not show up on the screen. She was replaced by a double. Jennifer never cared much for horseback riding and in her words, "if you look closely in some scenes, you can see me holding on for dear life. For more about this film and her career, please check my memorial tribute as it appeared in Classic Images in November, l997. Our nickname for each other was "Scorpio."
