Episode 64: William S. Hart in “The Bargain” (1914)
Bill and E.J. wrangle up a silent movie critically important to the Santa Clarita Valley's film heritage: it was the movie that made Santa Clarita resident William S. Hart a star! His first feature film, from way back in 1914, William S. Hart stars in The Bargain! See Bill Hart begin his career with what would become his trademark for many of his 70 films, his ability to handle pistols two-handed. In fact, in his breakout film here, his character is known at the "Two-gun man!"
