William S. Hart Facts
An interesting footnote, the famous prohibition lawman (also once a bodyguard for the President Of The United States) "Two Gun Hart" changed his name to that of this famous actor and in some ways patterned his life after him. The real-life lawman Two Gun Hart seldom revealed his birth name, which was James Vincenzo Capone. He was the older brother of infamous gangster Al Capone (see "Capone: The Man And The Era" by Laurence Bergreen).

His mansion in Newhall, California, is now a museum and has been preserved with its original fixtures and furnishings intact.

Inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1975.
