WILLIAM S. "BILL" HART
The early western star pens a quote from Macbeth: "Life is but a walking shadow"
Autograph quotation signed: " "Life is but a walking shadow"/Macbeth/Vry truly yours/William S. Hart", 4½x2½. William S. "Bill" 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 and was a pallbearer at Earp's 1929 funeral. Binding holes on top margin. Toned. Light surface creases. Ink print on verso.
