B/w photo of Hart playing cards with actor friends, owned and signed by him
Photograph signed "John Hart." B/w, 10x8. Publicity photo from Movie Stars Parade Magazine. Hart is shown here playing cards with some of his actor friends. According to notes on the back (written in an unknown hand), the others in the photo are Rhonda Fleming (Gunfight at the OK Corral), Dorothy Malone (Sincerely Yours), Scott Brady (El Alaméin) and Mona Freeman (TV and movie actress) and her husband. This photo belonged to Hart. Hart, born in 1917, has over 100 credited and uncredited roles on TV and the big screen. Baby Boomers probably remember him best as the Lone Ranger, or more specifically "the other Lone Ranger". Hart, who was a cowboy before becoming an actor, had numerous roles in westerns, including small parts on TV's The Lone Ranger, before being offered the role from 1952 to 1954. He replaced Clayton Moore, the series' original Lone Ranger, for 52 episodes from 1952 to 1954, when Moore was fired for demanding a higher salary. In one interview, Hart claimed that all 52 episodes were shot in a matter of weeks, with each episode taking only two days to shoot. Hart forged a close relationship with Jay Silverheels, who played Tonto, and his cowboy training helped him to ride the Lone Ranger's horse Silver, whom he said was jumpy and difficult to ride. Hart went on to other roles, including parts on Bat Masterson, Rawhide and Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans. He played another masked hero in The Adventures of Captain Africa, a Columbia serial intended to be a sequel to The Phantom but which had its name and hero changed after Columbia lost the rights to the character. He also played the Lone Ranger for one episode of Happy Days and was cast as a reporter in The Legend of the Lone Ranger, the movie adaptation of the Lone Ranger story. Corners have small folds. Otherwise in fine condition.
