Tom Mix Safety Poster
Tom Mix (1880-1940) was the greatest Western film star
of the silent era. He led the life of the rugged outdoorsman.
He enlisted in the Army at the outbreak of the Spanish American
War, participated in wild west shows, served as sheriff and marshall
and ultimately found his way into movies. He made hundreds of
films; silent shorts, silent features, and talkies. In 1933 the
Tom Mix radio program originated on NBC with Ralston cereal as
the exclusive sponsor. Ralston offered hundreds of Tom Mix premiums.
There were also pulp magazines, comic books, badges and many other
give-aways. Tom Mix remained an influential figure even after
his death. The radio show continued into the early 1950's as did
the comics and books. The Tom Mix poster we are offering was published
in 1947 and asks "Can you find your unseen Enemy? Look .
. . for the hidden face of carelessness in each picture."
