Holliman was born into a poor family, and was given-up for adoption at birth; only a week later, he was adopted by an oil-field worker, Henry Holliman, and his wife with whom he happily lived until his adoptive father’s death 13 years later. As a youngster, Earl worked as an usher at a movie theater, but after saving enough money, he headed to Hollywood. However, after being unsuccessful at finding any work, he lied about his age and enlisted in the US Navy during World War II, and was assigned to Los Angeles, but his gae was discovered and he was discharged, and returned home and finished high school, but re-enlisted in the Navy as soon as he was old enough. This time, due to his love for acting, he appeared in several Norfolk Navy Theatre productions, which helped him develop his interest and confirm his future career. He soon left the Navy and enrolled at the Pasadena Playhouse to study acting, but Earl also graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Holliman made his debut appearance with a cameo role as a bellboy in “Scared Stiff”(1953), but went on and made his way to landing more significant roles in military dramas and westerns. His notable film roles include movies such as “Forbidden Planet”(1956), “Sons of Katie Elder” (1965) and “The Rainmaker”(1956), in which he portrayed the role of Katharine Hepburn’s brother – a role which earned him a Golden Globe Award.

Holliman was a well-known face on television as well. He appeared as a shipwrecked marine in “The Sea Is Boilin Hot”, which led to him being cast in a similar production in 1959 Twilight Zone pilot episode “Where is Everybody?”. When it comes to his engagement in TV series his most notable roles include “Hotel de Paree”(1959), “Wide Country”(1962), “P.S. I Luv U”(1991),“Delta”(1992) and his most famous – “Police Woman”(1974-1978). Some of his later career ventures include starring in TV series “Night Man”(1997-1999) as Frank Domino. Holliman earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Aside from acting, Earl used to own the Fiesta Dinner Playhouse in San Antonio, Texas, where he sometimes performed.

When it comes to his private life, he is said to have been in relationships with actresses Dolores Hart and Valerie Allen, but there is no record of him having married. Earl is known as an avid animal-rights activist, and has served as president of Actors and Others for Animals for more than 25 years.
