Tom Mix at Old Tricks Again -- June 13, 2019

Moving Picture World, 07-June-1919
100 years ago this month, Tom Mix was starring in Fox's The Wilderness Trail, which was set in the wilds of Canada. The caption makes fun of Tom's sweater. I say you'd have to be confident in your masculinity to wear it.

Romance of Cow Hollow was released as Rough-Riding Romance. There is a neighborhood in San Francisco known as Cow Hollow.  No relation.

High Speed may have been released as The Speed Maniac.  I do not know what became of A Hard-Boiled Tenderfoot.
