TOM MIX
This rare piece of radio history is an unsigned color mask of Western actor Tom Mix from The Tom Mix Ralston Straight Shooters radio show, which played from the 1930s to the 1950s. Accompanied by a magazine article on Mix' 1934 serial The Miracle Rider.
Ephemera unsigned. Mask for The Tom Mix Ralston Straight Shooters radio show. Color, 14x11¾, printed on cardstock, with holes and perforations for eyes and mouth. The Tom Mix Ralston Straight Shooters (1933-1942, 1944-1951) was a kid's western-adventure radio show, with Mix pitted against a sometimes fantastic array of rustlers, killers, ghosts, invisible men, saboteurs and the like. He was sometimes assisted, especially during World War II, by Superman, Captain Midnight, Jack Armstrong and Hop Harrington. Interestingly, Mix himself was never featured on The Tom Mix Ralston Straight Shooters. He was instead portrayed by a procession of four actors: Artells Dickson, Jack Holden, Russell Thorson and, finally, Joe "Curly" Bradley. Lightly toned and creased. Tape residue and repairs and paper loss on verso, which show through. Otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by: Unsigned magazine page. B/w, 7¼x10. Titled: "Tom Mix - Mascot Star - In Action". Magazine article from an unknown magazine on Mix and his 1934 serial The Miracle Rider. With a small 3 ½ x 2 ½ b/w movie still of Mix in bottom right corner. Lightly toned, soiled, foxed and creased. Mounting residue and paper loss on verso with show-through. Irregular edges. Otherwise in fine condition. A skilled horseman from childhood, Mix (1880-1940, born Thomas Hezikiah Mix in Mix Run, Pennsylvania) was hired to round up cattle for the film Ranch Life in the Great Southwest (1910), and was assigned a supporting role in the film. The film's producers, Selig Polyscope, retained him as an actor, and from 1911 to 1917 he appeared in over 100 one- and two-reelers, often producing and/or directing his films. Selig went out of business in 1917 and Mix was signed by Fox, which starred him in the westerns that established him as the premier cowboy star. His success helped Fox become a major studio. In the late 20s and early 30s, he quit films for three years to tour with the Ringling Brothers Circus with his famous horse, Tony. From 1932 to 1935, he starred in several talkie westerns, then retired from the screen. He was 60 when he was killed in a car crash.
