In July 1926, silent film star Tom Mix arrived by train in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, for the shooting. He was accompanied by his family, 55 cast and crew members and 22 horses, including Tony the Horse, who was just as popular as his human counterpart. Two Pullman cars and two special baggage cars conveyed Mix's company and equipment. See more »

For those interested in American silent movie history, this film provides a rare look into movies as popular culture. Sadly, 95% of all silent fims made, have been lost through nitrate decomposition or outright destruction. This film made in 1926, is a rare survivor of the cowboy genre targeted for a youth audience. The plot to say the least is simplistic. But it was loaded wonderful stunts, constant action and spectacular scenery. Tom Mix was a hugh boxoffice draw, and as well know then, as was Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, or Mary Pickford. If you're curious to see a film that might well have thrilled your great grandfather and great grandmother when they were kids, check out *The Great A&K*.
