WILLIAM S. HART
He signs an autograph letter, nostalgic - in 1936 - for earlier times.
Autograph Letter signed: "William S Hart", 1 page, 8x10. Horseshoe Ranch, Newhall, California, 1936 September 26. On personal letterhead to "Dear Dr. Costello". In full: It was indeed thoughtful of you to send me the two programs. They tell me of the long ago. Time slips past us so quickly I remember as if it were yesterday. I think you would be interested in my book. It tells of those days. Very truly yours". William S. Hart (1870-1946) 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. 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, a pallbearer at Earp's 1929 funeral. Scattered creasing not near signature. Mild toning. Otherwise, fine condition.
