Thus did Tom Mix, a legend in his own time, come to the end of the trail in the middle of a dusty desert highway . Tom Mix was still a big, big name, still a star Millions of little boys still worshiped him, as did millions of grown men and a lot of women. He was still hale and hearty, and he had a legion of close personal friends in Arizona, in Hollywood and the world at large.Sid Craig understood the allure of Tom Mix the man.
He loved fast automobiles, and drove them with accelerator to the floorboard.
Tom Mix had charisma, a magnetic personality that made people the rich, the famous and the lowly alike love him.
Somewhat of a swashbuckler in his personal life, Mix certainly was no phony. The cowboy seen on the silent screen was a real for-sure cowboy, a poke who had learned to rope and ride before he ever thought of becoming an actor in Western movies. No stand-in did dangerous scenes in Mix pictures. No stunt man rode over the cliff for Tom Mix. He did it for himself.
