Be careful here....I was thrown off by some of the clues. Chaplin was widely known as "The Tramp" so Hayakawa would not completely fit here. Also, "The King of Hollywood" was used way too much. Later on, Gable was also the King. "Valentino and even Novarro could have been cited as "The Great Lover." And, while we are on Novarro, his name is spelled incorrectly. Lastly, William S. Hart was the first true western superstar. Mix followed closely though. Although he began before Hart, and was a true cowboy, Hart was a has-been by the Twenties, whereas Mix was not. Kudos to the tough clues for some stars who are not well known today: Bowers, Walthall, and Blue. This was fun!
