The link to Wikipedia claims to be more about its history but the content underneath is very thin. I think we should put at least those two sentences at the top of this page: stuff on ownership is probably what people are after when they follow "about" --BozMo 18:52, 28 Jun 2004 (UTC)Talk

Is it a WikiWiki or is it a mistake? Archer7 20:19, 7 February 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, I agree. There isn't much real info, kind of just randomness. If anybody finds this comment offensive, I apologize. I am not trying to bite anybody.Aquaflame28 (talk) 22:15, 8 November 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Changes to simplify this page[change source]

I made quite a few changes to this page but it still needs some help. In particular, the "Getting in touch" section needs some work. Can anyone think of a better way of saying that so that people who don't speak English as their first language can understand? Also, the links in that section need to have commas and periods in them like the links on the other parts of the page, but I don't know what to do with them so I've left them like they were. --Roman à clef (talk) 17:10, 6 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Wiliam S. Hart[change source]

Hart was born in Newburgh, New York, to Nicholas Hart (c. 1834–1895) and Rosanna Hart (c. 1839–1909). William had two brothers, who died very young, and four sisters. His father was born in England, and his mother was born in Ireland. He was a distant cousin of the western star Neal Hart.

He began his acting career on stage in his 20s, with his 1888 debut performance as a member of a company headed by Daniel E. Bandmann. The following year he joined Lawrence Barrett's company in New York and later spent several seasons with Mlle. Hortense Rhéa's traveling company. He toured and traveled extensively while trying to make a name for himself as an actor, and for a time directed shows at the Asheville Opera House in North Carolina, around the year 1900. He had some success as a Shakespearean actor on Broadway, working with Margaret Mather and other stars; he appeared in the original 1899 stage production of Ben-Hur. His family had moved to Asheville but, after his youngest sister Lotta died of typhoid fever in 1901, they all left together for Brooklyn until William went back on tour. @Wiliam Hart (talk) 15:49, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
