#Fact
1In 1939, shortly before the Second World War, Mix appeared with his Tom Mix Circus in Germany. Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, who was an enthusiastic film fan and admirer of Mix, welcomed the western star via telephone in Germany. It is reported that Mix answered to Hitler: "I would like to visit my fans in Germany again, but only over your dead body.".
2Was the favorite movie star of "Jed Clampett", the patriarch of the Clampett family in The Beverly Hillbillies (1962).
3He never thought much of his acting ability. Once when a director asks him to change expressions, he responded "Which one do you want? One? two? or three?".
4At one point during the height of his career, he had all his cars fitted with custom-manufactured tires specially molded to leave tracks with his initials TM in the road.
5According to author Jeff Guinn, Mix was good friends with Frank Hamer, the Texas Ranger who became famous for bringing to justice the members of the Newton Brothers gang (1924) and for tracking down outlaws Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker (1934).
6Credited with revolutionizing the Western film genre by eschewing realism in favor of more fantastical, lighthearted story lines and picturesque visual elements (clean, expensively tailored costumes, etc). He is often presented by film historians as the first 'rhinestone' cowboy.
7He is mentioned in the song "TV is the Thing This Year" (1953) written by William Sanford and Phil Medley.
8Author Clifford Irving wrote a "historical fiction" novel, "Tom Mix and Pancho Villa", about Mix's involvement with Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa and his supposedly joining Villa's army in the fight against dictator Porfirio Díaz in the bloody Mexican civil wars of the early 20th century. While it's known that Mix did spend time in Mexico during that violent era and had mentioned years later that he had in fact met Villa, it's not known if their association was as close as Irving claimed it was in the novel.
9Profiled in "Back in the Saddle: Essays on Western Film and Television Actors", Gary Yoggy, ed. (McFarland, 1998).
10Great uncle of DeWalt Mix.
11Was portrayed by Bruce Willis in Sunset (1988).
12Despite stories to the contrary, he was not a member of President Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders in Cuba during the Spanish-American War.
13At his funeral Rudy Vallee sang "Empty Saddles"
14In 1904 he was a bartender and marshal in the small town of Dewey, OK, which is also the hometown of actor/filmmaker Adam Ropp. Ropp is a close friend of the Tom Mix Museum and visits on a regular basis. Ironically, Ropp's directorial debut (Last Conversation (2003)) was shot in Dewey and starred Mix's great, great grandnephew, Bret Mix.
15He was Peter Cushing's childhood hero.
16On October 12, 1940, while driving his 1937 Cord Sportsman through the Arizona desert he took a turn too fast, a suitcase broke loose and struck him in the head and his car plunged into a ravine. The ravine was later named "The Tom Mix Wash" in his honor. A plaque at the location reads: "TOM MIX January 6, 1880 - October 12, 1940 Whose spirit left his body on this spot and whose characterization and portrayals in life served to better fix memories of the old west in the minds of living men.".
17Never had kind words for John Wayne because, many believe, he was afraid that Wayne would push him out of the limelight. That hatred grew as Wayne's star rose and, due to the fact that Mix wouldn't take a pay cut to do radio, his own star began to fall. Asked by a journalist what he thought of Wayne, Mix only replied, "The only Christian words that I could use are 'no-talent upstart'". Wayne, for his part, had disliked Mix since Wayne's college days at USC, when Mix told several members of the football team (Wayne among them) to stop by Fox Studios and he would get them jobs in the movies. Wayne and several others did so a few weeks later, only to be informed that Mix had never told anyone at the studio about his promises of employment, and they were thrown off the lot. Wayne never forgave Mix.
18On April 13, 2002, his guns were stolen from the Tom Mix Museum in Dewey, OK.
19Daughter with Victoria Forde, Thomasina
20He deserted the army to marry his first wife, Grace Allin; the fact that he was a deserter did not come up until after his death, by which time he was so famous that the army had to hold its tongue and give him a full military burial. This dovetails neatly into the known facts and into the legend of Tom Mix.
21Charter member of the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1958.
22Tom's parents were Edwin and Elizabeth Mix. They named him Thomas Hezikiah Mix. When he enlisted in the Army in 1898, he listed his name as Thomas E. Mix (for Edwin).
23Rumors that that Mix's radio career never got off the ground after he left films because his voice was high-pitched are not true. His voice, in fact, was deep and husky in tone. Radio was such a low-paying profession that it could not support his high-on-the-hog style of living. He loved sports cars, wild parties and fancy clothes. He owned a huge Hollywood mansion that had his name emblazoned above it in neon lights and had numerous ex-wives to support. Mix instead left films for his true passion, the circus. He became one of its greatest showmen.
24Made over $6,000,000 during his career but an extravagant lifestyle had sharply reduced his estate to a modest amount by the time he died.
25Appears on sleeve of The Beatles' "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album.
26Served as a pallbearer at the funeral of legendary western lawman Wyatt Earp in 1929.
27Daughter with Olive Mix, Ruth Mix.

1Years ago I used to live in a cow-camp, where a bed and a knife, fork, spoon were all the things I could look forward to in the evening. Now I live in what is known as a gentleman's estate. There is a big house and a lawn in front of which Barnum and Bailey could put all their tents. There are tennis courts and a swimming pool with so many different-colored tiles that you feel ashamed to get in with only an ordinary bathing suit. I go back to this place in the evening and wander around. Nothing there but dignity.
2I try to make the pictures so that when a boy pays, say, 20 cents to see it, he will get 20 cents worth, not 10. If I drop, you see, it would be like putting my hand in his pocket and stealing a dime.
3[of his famous horse, Tony the Horse] I've owned Tony since he was born, 17 years ago. He is a good horse and will be for some time yet, as I have never extended him in work. He doesn't like this tour much, though, and has been getting cross about it. Several times he has tried to bite me within the last few days and once he succeeded.
