"MIXVILLE": Are our old cowboy heroes really dead?
Not according to Jubal "Tom Mix" McCabe.
The Fabulous Tom Mix: Thomas Edwin Mix (born Thomas Hezikiah Mix; January 6, 1880 – October 12, 1940) was an American film actor and the star of many early Western movies. He made a reported 336 films between 1910 and 1935, all but nine of which were silent features. He was Hollywood’s first Western megastar and is noted as having helped define the genre for all cowboy actors who followed. Tom Mix was "the King of Cowboys" when the influence of his screen persona was seen in his approach to portraying cowboys. Such was the influence on the life of Jubal 'Tom Mix' McCabe.
We need seasoned actors to present our original works.
