John Hart (December 13, 1917 - September 20, 2009) was an American motion picture and television actor, born in Los Angeles, California. In his early career, he appeared mostly in Westerns. Although he played mostly minor roles in some fairly well known films, he was probably best known for replacing Clayton Moore in 1952 for one season of the television show The Lone Ranger when Moore ostensibly demanded a higher salary. Hart began his screen career in 1937 with a bit part in Daughter of Shanghai. He continued in a variety of B pictures such as Prison Farm and King of Alcatraz before appearing in two of Cecil B. DeMille's films The Buccaneer (1938) and North West Mounted Police (1940). His acting career was interrupted when he was drafted into the US Army in 1941.
