A native of Philadelphia, Holm
has been interested in acting ever
since he began taking part in pro-
grams during grade school. He con-
tinued his acting endeavors at
Perkiomen prep school and in 1924
while a freshman at the Univers-
ity of Pennsylvania he was given
a major role in the annual Mask
and Wig production.
Although he left college before
graduation, Holm continued theat-
rical studies on his own. Remark-
ing on the rarity of college de-
grees, now a more common oc-
curence in the theater, Holm said,
"Twenty-five years ago if you
were in the theater and had a de-
gree that was the first thing you
kept quiet."
Appeared In 'Front Pages'
Before achieving success as a
Writer, Holm had appeared as Hil-
dy Johnson in "Front Page" on
Broadway and had various parts
in other plays.
His first play, "Three Men on a
Horse," written in 1934 and pro-
duced by George Abbot was widely
acclaimed and the author took a
road company to London in 1936.

In order to keep his acting from

liquor promotions as "lying prop-

youth to alcoholism.
Other opponents to the propos-
