Light tear at top edge. Hart was a writer as well as an actor.
Among his works were A Lighter of Flames (1923) and Hoofbeats (1933), as well as his autobiography My Life East and West (1929). He also had 11 screenwriting credits. 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.
