Yes, Tom Mix stared in this movie!
3 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My Great Uncle, ARTHUR ARLO LONG, Nickname: "Pat", 1883-1968, was the first white person to bulldog a steer in the movies and he did it in a motion picture filmed in Chicago, IL. in 1909. The silent movie was "The Millionaire Cowboy" staring Tom Mix. It is said he (Pat) saved a woman on a run away horse in that same movie. Pat also toured with W. A. Dickey's Circle D Ranch Wild West Show and it is said he learned to bulldog steers from Bill Picket a black man who bulldogged the first steer.

Tom Mix was born in 1880 in Pennsylvania and he served in the Spanish-American War. He eventually moved to Guthrie, Oklahoma. Later, after trying his hand as a bartender, he worked as a hand with Zack Mullhall's 101 Ranch. While working at the 101 he began his movie career. This is probably where he met Pat Long. Pat was a working cowboy on many of the large ranches in Osage, Rogers and Washington County,Oklahoma, serving as foreman as he gained experience. Pat also appeared in the movie "Boar War". After his short movie career he went back to "punching" cows.

For a short time, around 1911, Thomas E. Mix served as Marshall in Dewey, Oklahoma, which is the site of the Tom Mix Museum. It houses items from his personal collection. His movie career spanned 26 years - from 1909 through 1935. He made 336 feature films, produced 88, wrote 71 and directed 117. Tom made only 9 sound feature films.

Tom Mix died in a car accident in 1940 between Tuscon and Florence, Arizona. Pat's last years were spent at Callie Flannagan's boarding house in Claremore, Oklahoma; he died in 1968.
