Thanks for posting a photo of one of the best. William S Hart was a classically trained stage actor -- he played Messala in the original production of Ben Hur -- who became one of the early western stars. His movies tended to be grim and stark. He was famous for playing the good bad man, often an outlaw who was redeemed by the love of a good woman. See "Hell's Hinges" for an early noir western.
