Description : The Amazing Tom Mix The Most Famous Cowboy of the Movies Tom Mix was a town marshal and cowboy in the Oklahoma Territory, a rodeo champion and a wild west show performer. With his devil-may-care attitude, quick wit and penchant for doing breath-taking stunts on his wonder horse, Tony, Tom Mix went on to become the #1 movie cowboy of silent films, earning millions of dollars at a time when movie tickets cost pennies.While he basked in this incredible acclaim, Tom Mix lived in fear that his deep, dark secrets would be discovered and his career and his cherished heroic image would be destroyed.Celebrated author Richard D. Jensen has spent more than 30 years researching the life of Tom Mix, the man hailed as "the idol of every American boy."With incredible detail, much of it gained from hundreds of original letters, records, documents and eyewitness accounts, The Amazing Tom Mix cuts through 100 years of public relations mythology, tall tales and outright lies to bring the true and inspiring story of a man whose Saturday matinee cowboy image would become the standard for all of the movie cowboys who rode the silver screen after him. "Here is Tom Mix as he really was...a captivating biography ... brilliant ... delightful ... It is a splendid book." -Richard S. Wheeler, five-time Spur Award winning author of Trouble In Tombstone. "... the most complete biography of Mix's life of trials, tribulations and victories." -John Duncklee, author of Bull By The Tale.

Description : This biographical novel is a revealing look into the very colorful, larger-than-life Western silent-film superstar Tom Mix. The author demonstrates having done meticulous research by interviewing friends, family, and colleagues--contemporaries who knew Tom Mix intimately and paints a vivid sense of who he was. Mix is seemingly forgotten by many Americans, yet he truly was a superstar in every sense of the word. This is even more amazing given that media weren't anything near as high-tech and real-time-oriented as today. He was internationally known for doing most of his own amazing stunts and traveling with his own circus/Wild-West show. The author also reveals that Mix's personal life was no less colorful with: five ex-wives, a huge Hollwood mansion, a fleet of luxury cars and a propensity to drink. Yet he maintained a squeaky-clean, super-hero-like public image. Some of his movies are available online and are worth the look--especially when you realize they were done in an era of few special effects. This book will motivate you to get your hands on these films. "The Last Trail", "The Great K & A Train Robbery" and "Sky High" are great examples of surviving Tom Mix films.

Description : The Tom Mix Cord: Saga of a Western Film Star's Classic Motorcar, tells the story of this classic car from personalization to wreckage to restoration. Well documented at every stage, this book offers a look at Tom Mix's unique history in the film industry, circus, and his love affair with a 1937 Super Charged Cord that has won nearly thirty awards. Tom Mix was the highest paid actor in Hollywood during the early part of the 20th Century mostly during the silent film era, being featured in 336 films and dubbed as the "King of Cowboys" until his untimely death in this very 1937 Cord. While Mix owned the Cord, he personalized it to make it a true show piece. The Tom Mix Award for the best Cord given at the West Coast Auburn Cord Duesenberg show is a coveted trophy. The car has won the award twice, along with being on the cover of Antique Automobile Car Club of America's magazine. If you are a car buff, western film buff, or know one, this title is one not to miss. This book includes the ownership history of the car (with some surprises), the fully researched and documented additions made to the car by Mix, a history of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Company, a history of Tom Mix's other endeavors such as owning a circus featuring Wild West Shows, and a detail of the restoration of the Cord to its current show quality state. 11 x 8.5 inches, 144 pages, hardcover.

Description : Take a psychedelic trip through the twisted side of Hollywood, where two up and coming writers move to Los Angeles to follow their dream - writing the best movie ever written. The studio sets the pair up in the perfect house, which was previously owned by Tom Mix, Tinseltown's first superstar cowboy. In Hollywood, everyone is in "the business", and the studio has high hopes for the two new writers. But unknown to this pair of misfit writers, their dreams soon turn to nightmares. First, there's something hiding in the closet, then, the awful crying in the walls, and now one of them is acting strange. Terrified, one thinks the other must be going crazy - but could his insanity extend to the house they are renting, or is it the work of a demented serial killer? As the studio eagerly awaits the completion of their work, one must convince the other to leave this place before the powerful Ghost of Tom Mix reaches through time to drive him insane. I can only describe The Ghost of Tom Mix as "the definitive Hollywood horror story", noting that almost everything in the book is ghoulish. By using such elements as drug addiction, serial killers, and a collection of varied ghost stories, we weave a story from cheap sarcasm, tabloid headlines, Hollywood history and humor.

Description : Tom Mix became a major star in the 1920s, earning over $900,000 for his movie work in 1921. Fox refused, however, to renew his contract in 1927, and that, coupled with the stock market crash of 1929, left him virtually penniless. In 1932 Mix resumed his movie career, making Destry Rides Again, his first talkie. Later he became a circus owner and star. This is the story of Mix's life and career; it includes a comprehensive filmography of his work.

Description : Long before sound became an essential part of motion pictures, Westerns were an established genre. The men and women who brought to life cowboys, cowgirls, villains, sidekicks, distressed damsels and outraged townspeople often continued with their film careers, finding success and fame well into the sound era--always knowing that it was in silent Westerns that their careers began. More than a thousand of these once-silent Western players are featured in this fully indexed encyclopedic work. Each entry includes a detailed biography, covering both personal and professional milestones and a complete Western filmography. A foreword is supplied by Diana Serra Cary (formerly the child star "Baby Peggy"), who performed with many of the actors herein.

Description : In 1962, Samuel K. Rubin founded 8mm Collector, the predecessor to Classic Images, a widely respected publication in the vintage film hobby that celebrates the golden age of Hollywood. He was instrumental in beginning the "vintage film fan movement," founding The Society for Cinephiles, as well as organizing the Cinecon vintage film conventions. This is simultaneously a history of the vintage film hobby, a history of Classic Images, and a memoir of Rubin's forty years in the center of the hobby's world. Rubin has drawn from his personal experiences with industry professionals from the silent and early sound era, and from his service during the more than 320 issues of Classic Images published since that magazine's inception. The book covers the birth of 8mm Collector and includes reviews of the classic films, reviews of books and videos of the early screen and profiles of classic film industry personalities. Classic Images still provides a medium for film enthusiasts to share their experiences with different vendors, buy and sell movie memorabilia, and generally covers the entire movie industry from the viewpoint of the collector.
