Two of Ince's stars for Triangle continued with him, Charles Ray and, most importantly, William S. Hart. Near the end of June 1917 the contract between Ince and Paramount was a key point, noting that Hart was so vital that without him, the entire arrangement could be terminated. The actor was widely regarded as “bait” in the negotiations, and he was furious at being used in this way, although his $10,000 a week placed him with the highest-paid performers. Despite the acrimony between producer and star, the contract that Ince had negotiated with Paramount for Hart was vastly more lucrative than what the star had previously been offered, and gave him almost complete independence in the making of his films, with his own staff.
