Tom Mix was undoubtedly the most widely popular of the Western stars of the old silent days. His only great rival was William S. Hart.

In 1918 Mix became a star at William Fox's studio, and wound up appearing in "Up and Coming," "Trailin'," "Chasing the Moon," "The Deadwood Coach," "Riders of the Purple Sage," "Arizona Wildcat" and scores of others.

In all these pictures and in in the many to follow, Mix's companion was his horse Tony. For more than 20 years the faithful animal was part and parcel of Mix's adventures on the screen.
