WILLIAM S. HART The original Western movie star wrote the address on this unsigned envelope Autograph Envelope Unsigned: 6½x3¾. Return address of the actor's is in the top left corner. Postmarked August 3, 1934. Mailed to a Miss Kay Hall. William Hart (1870-1946, born in Newburgh, New York) began acting onstage in New York, going on to make his name as a Shakespearean actor on Broadway. By his 30s, he was a highly popular stage performer, particularly in western plays. He had spent his youth traveling around the country with his father, an itinerant laborer. Hart was 44 when he starred in his first film in 1914. Basing his westerns on his own memories of the West, he insisted on stark realism, using bare, unglamorous storylines that emphasized plot and character over action. His credits include The Silent Man (1917) and The Return of Draw Egan (1916). In the early 20s, other western stars emerged who emphasized spectacular action and larger-than-life heroics, and Hart's popularity faded. In 1925 he made his final film, Tumbleweeds. Hart was a friend of legendary lawman Wyatt Earp and was a pallbearer at Earp's 1929 funeral. Toned and worn. Tears along edges. Creasing and folds throughout. Ink smudged.
