[edit]Early life

Holt was born on April 28, 1928 in Snyder, Texas, to Malcolm C. and Verna Vesta Stavely, nee Chandler.[1] Some sources claim her birthdate is January 1, 1940 and her birthplace was Abilene, TX.[2][3] After she graduated from high school in Hagerman, New Mexico, she attended McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. She was a model in Houston, Texas. In 1956, she was crowned Miss Maryland[4] and in July, 1956 participated in the Miss USA pageant in Long Beach, California where she was a semi-finalist. In August, 1957 she was among nine models sent to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by Rose Marie Reid Swim Suits of Los Angeles and the Eileen Ford Agency in New York. Holt appeared in various TV commercials in 1958 and reportedly signed a $50,000-a-year model contract in New York at age 19. She was in a Revlon lipstick commercial, in which she was reportedly spotted[5] by director Howard Hawks who later cast her in several of his films. She was subsequently named "Miss Sweater Girl" in October, 1958 by the Wool Bureau. The contest was held in the Crystal Suite of the Savoy Hilton Hotel in New York.

Holt's first credited role was as Lisa, a model, in If a Man Answers, a 1962 comedy film directed by Henry Levin and starring Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee.[6] In 1966, she co-starred in El Dorado opposite John Wayne.[7] In all, she performed in over 20 TV and film productions between 1962 and 1980.[8]
