Western Silent Movies involving Old West Characters

Even as the Old West was still building its exciting history, modern technology presented a new way to record that history (and make it up), as the movies came to the scene. Some of the old timers ended up acting out incidents from their lives on the silver screen. Several became advisors to the industry. One or two got bit parts. One tried to save others from emulating his evil ways! Here they are in silence, because none of them lasted until the “talkies” came along.  {001}
