Milton Sills is not a household name now, but he seems to have been a big star in the silent era. He starred in the 1924 version of The Sea Hawk, which was the #1 box office hit that year. Warner Brothers bought First National in a merger in 1927, and remade some of the Ken Maynard Westerns. Somewhere In Sonora was remade (with stock footage) in 1933 or '34, with John Wayne.
Never heard of Milton Sills before. At first glance, I thought it was William S. Hart.Tom Tyler played small parts (often as bad guys) in "A" movies, and starring roles (usually as heroes) in "B" movies. To me, he will always be Captain Marvel, the Phantom, and the leader of the Three Mesquiteers.
