“It was through my dad that I got into the picture business. Tom Mix came to San Francisco to appear at a rodeo for the policemen’s benefit fund. I had worked out with police horses since I was a small kid, and Mix was impressed with the way I rode in the rodeo. He told me to look him up if I ever came to Hollywood.”George O’Brien
