    The Return of "Draw" Egan (Triangle, 1916). One Sheet (28.5" X 41").
    A classic tale set in the old West, silent cowboy William S. Hart plays a villain-turned-hero in this story of a man who can't outrun his past, a Western archetype now used in every genre from gangster films to romantic comedies. With it's rough and tumble town full of vampy saloon girls, bar brawls, and an intense shootout at the film's climax, this five-reel feature held audiences captive with frontier thrills and kept Hart's star steadily on the rise. Actress/director Margery Wilson, fresh off the set of D.W. Griffith's Intolerance: Love's Struggles Through the Ages, stars alongside Hart as his driving redemptive force and pure hearted love interest, the second of five films the two would make together. Coincidentally enough, the caption situated at the bottom of the poster, "Someday I'm a-going to ask you to be my wife," foreshadows Hart's real-life proposal to the leading lady. Though she turned him down, and was later rejected by him in turn when she changed her mind, the two would remain good friends for the rest of their careers. This beautiful stone litho one sheet is the very first paper Heritage has had the pleasure to present from this thrilling Western, which used to have a tear in the upper left corner and wear at the right edge. Very Fine+ on Linen.
