Tom Mix was born on January 6, 1880 in Mix Run, Pennsylvania. His early work as a cowhand and deputy sheriff in Texas gave him material for a career as a screen cowboy. Mix featured in some 300 silent westerns. His horse and loyal sidekick, Tony, became almost as famous as Mix himself. After "talkies" came on the scene, Mix's career declined. He died in 1940.
