    This looks like a silent movie — is the lady Louise Glaum?

    Alfred Hollingsworth today; and the film is one of my favorite William S. Hart pictures, the classic HELL’S HINGES (1916).

    The movie is “Hell’s Hinges.” Monday – Louise Glaum, Tuesday – Alfred Hollingsworth, Wednesday – Jack Standing, Thursday (early posting) – Clara Williams. Looking in my crystal ball I see William S. Hart on Friday.

    Clara Williams

    Jack Standing (brother of Sir Guy) on Wednesday, and Clara Williams today. And I’ll bet Mr. Hart is waiting in the wings for tomorrow . . .

    That’s former Shakespearean actor William S. Hart. I really need to visit his ranch near Newhall.

    Friday: William S. Hart.
    Go Big Red!

    I think Friday is William S. Hart, but no guess on the movie.
