William S. Hart wrote this quotation - "Honest Injun Joe - I 'aint' that kind of a guy at all. I really am not" - on a sheet of personalized stationery from his Horseshoe Ranch in Newhall, California
Autograph quotation signed "Honest Injun Joe - I 'aint' [sic] that kind of a guy at all/I really am not/Sincerely yours/William S. Hart". 1 page, 8½x11, on Hart's personalized stationery from his Horseshoe Ranch in Newhall, California. Postscripted: "P. S. I like [illegible] by Guinness/too. Both of you please accept/the gratitude of an actor -". Hart, who had shot some of his Westerns at locations on and around Newhall, purchased the 265 acres that would become Horseshoe Ranch in 1924 or 1925. He moved permanently to the property in 1927, when his ranch house was completed. Hart, who headquartered his company at the ranch (it had previously been based on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood), willed the property to the County of Los Angeles with the stipulation that it be called William S. Hart Park. At age 19, 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. 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 1920s, 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. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Light tear in right edge along top fold. Otherwise in fine condition.
