"Patrick Henry" Will be Next Bill Hart Movie -- October 9, 2021

Albuquerque Morning Journal, 23-October-1921

I have never seen William S Hart in Three Word Brand, but I have always liked the title. Bill plays a taciturn rancher who speaks in three word sentences, like "Go to hell" and "I love you." But first, Bill plays a Utah pioneer who gets killed in an attack by Native Americans. His twin sons are adopted by different families and each grows up without knowing the other exists. One grows up to be Three Word Brand and the other became the governor. The image shows Hart with the twins who played the young boys. 

The Living Age, 03-November-1923

In the article, Hart says his next film would be about American Founding Father Patrick Henry. He said it would be based on a novel that he was writing. The film was never produced, but Hart did publish the novel in 1923.
