"There are two life stories of Tom Mix. The one sedulously propagated during his stardom had him behaving heroically in half-a-dozen wars, rounding up outlaws as a US Marshal, and chatting happily in four Indian languages, as befitted one whose great-grandfather had translated the Bible into Osage. The truth, established by a young relative, Paul Mix, is more prosaic. His war service was largely imaginary, and ended in desertion; he was, briefly, a deputy sheriff; and he really was a cowboy with The Miller Brothers 101 Ranch, a Wild West show which sued him for horse-stealing. And this legendary Westerner was born, not in El Paso, as he said, but in rural Pennsylvania. But the poseur was still a great showman."--"The Illustrated Who's Who of the Cinema," edited by Ann Lloyd and Graham Fuller (1983)
