Biography

Traver, Tulare County, California, USA
American character actor of prodigious output who also directed and wrote silent films, Paul Hurst spent much of his early work in low-budget western. A native of Traver, California (in the San Joaquin Valley), Hurst had a first-hand knowledge of Western lore, growing up surrounded by the multi-million-acre Lux & Miller ranches that ran cattle throughout the state. Visiting San Francisco as a young man, he became involved in amateur theatricals and thereafter traveled to Los Angeles to join the emerging film industry there. He began appearing in films as early as 1912, most of them Westerns. Read more...
