With the assistant of his trusted associate Clifford Smith (who handled most of the second-unit stuff), William S. Hart directed his own starring vehicle The Aryan. Hart plays a westerner who suffers betrayal at the hands of seductive Louise Glaum. Seeking revenge, he resorts to robbery and murder. He is at last redeemed by virtuous Bessie Love. Incredibly, despite his box-office clout, William S. Hart's salary as both actor and director was a paltry $150 per week.
