Tom Mix
Tom Mix (1880-1940) was one of the biggest stars of the silver screen in post World War I. In 1917, he signed with up-and-coming film director William Fox, who had acquired the Edendale Studios on the east edge of Silver Lake. Mix produced his own films under Fox, acquiring adjoining parcels of land; the special studio lot covered twelve acres and became known as ‘Mixville’; a miniature western town. In 1918, Mix lived in this Craftsman bungalow located at 1614 Golden Gate Avenue.
