    Description

    Riddle Gawne (Artcraft, 1918). One Sheet (28.5" X 41").
    William S. Hart was the original screen cowboy and certainly one of cinema's greatest silent film stars. After some years as a stage actor, Hart ventured into film acting in 1914. He started in Westerns and remained there for the next ten years, starring in over seventy films, more than fifty of which he also directed, including Riddle Gawne. This handsome stone litho portrait depicts Hart as the title character seeking revenge on the man who stole his wife and killed his brother. It's the first one sheet we've seen to this film, and it presents beautifully after minor touchup to the folds. Very Fine+ on Linen.
