Justus D. Barnes

Justus D. Barnes, named George Barnes in some sources, was an American stage and film actor. He is best known for his role in the 1903 silent short The Great Train Robbery, which the American Film Institute and many film historians and critics recognize as the production that first established the Western genre, setting a new "narrative standard" in the motion picture industry. Kim Newman says it is "probably the first Western film with a storyline".
