Sky High (1922) - Starring Tom Mix


Sat 3/9 @ 11am

Presented with the Second Saturday Silent Series, "Sky High" stars Tom Mix, who served as sheriff of Dewey, OK before becoming one of Hollywood's first cowboy stars. All tickets are FREE courtesy of Hughes Lumber! Visit for more on their services.

Plus, the Tom Mix Museum of Dewey, OK will have authentic Tom Mix memorabilia on display, and Tom's grandson Gordon Hill will be in attendance! As always, Bill Rowland will play a live improvised score to the film on Circle's 1928 theater organ.

Western star Tom Mix, dubbed King of the Cowboys, portrays a government agent in pursuit of a ring of smugglers who Newbury has discovered are trafficking in Chinese immigrants. The pursuit eventually leads to a showdown in the Grand Canyon where many scenes in the film were shot. A romance with a character portrayed by Eva Novak dominates one of the subplots of the story written and directed by former newspaper reporter Lynn Reynolds. Mix, the antithesis of reigning Western hero William S. Hart, was easygoing, wore flashy gear and did his own stunts, a style that set a standard for cowboy stars that lasted decades.
