~The Cold Deck~
1917
~Plot Synopsis~
A western play, of course, for William S. Hart, "The Cold Deck," is his latest production. Here he is seen
as a typical gambler in the story of California in the early fifties. Instead of the usual Hart habiliments, he
dresses the part in high beaver hat, old-fashioned stock and frill shirt-bosom, flowered waistcoat and
broadcloth coat, and the polished boots of the period. But, to those who can only picture Hart in his past
delineations, it can be safely said that he presents as striking an appearance in this costume as he has in
other Western outfits.
