Hobart Bosworth (1867-1943)starred on Broadway in the last 19th century. Moving into silent films, he starred in the first major movie filmed on the West Coast, In the Sultan's Power (1909). In 1913 he formed his own production company in order to film a series of Jack London's stories, beginning with The Seawolf. Bosworth, Inc. was absorbed into Paramount in 1916. Bosworth was thus an important founding figure in Hollywood film. He continued movie acting for the rest of his life, playing character parts in talking films (usually a kindhearted older man but occasionally a villain). Light creases and pinholes at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
