I know a variety of William S. Hart films have been available over the years, but, unless I'm wrong, there have only been two "quality" releases? I'm thinking of TUMBLEWEEDS, an Image release of the Killiam print in 2002 and last year's release of WAGON TRACKS by Olive films. Although I think I have every film of his released by anyone since my Blackhawk Super 8 collecting days, I'd go for a boxed set of restored Hart films if Kino or someone would tackle that.

The Toll Gate, from David Shepard on Image, one of my earliest DVDs.

Kind of a shame that vol. 5 of Treasures from American Film Archives, the one specifically devoted to films about "The West" didn't include another Hart title. At least we got a Thomas Ince title (End of the Line with Sessue Hayakawa), some Broncho Billy and Mantrap with Clara Bow.

There are several Bill Hart films available on YouTube including The Bargin, 1914, The Return of Draw Egan, 1916 and a none western, The Whistle, 1921. All have musical scores and a good print.

There's also a copy of Hell's Hinges and a nice documentary on William S. Hart. These are all complete, but there are a number of short clips too.
