Biography

Art Mix (born George Washington Kesterson; June 18, 1896 – December 7, 1972), was an American character actor from the 1920s until the mid-1940s. Prior to becoming an actor, Mix worked as a circus performer and a boxer. He initially appeared under his real name, Kesterson, before being given his stage name of Mix by Victor Adamson. During his career he appeared in over 200 film shorts and feature films. Although most of his roles were in smaller and bit parts, he would sometimes be cast in a featured role, such as in 1932's Border Devils, starring Harry Carey. Rarely, he was even given the lead role, as in the 1935 "B"-western, The Rawhide Terror.Of his more than 90 feature films, some of the more notable include: Sagebrush Trail (1933), starring John Wayne; the 1939 classic Gunga Din, starring Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr.; and the Academy Award-winning The Westerner, starring Gary Cooper and Walter Brennan.In 1929, Mix won a lawsuit over the use of his professional name. A judge granted an injunction restraining actor Denver Dixon from using the name Art Mix "until one year after the release date of Kesterson's last picture of a series being made under contract with the J. Charles Davis Productions."Mix married the Cuban-American actress, Inez Gomez. He died on December 7, 1972, at the age of 76, in Riverside, California. Mix is buried under his stage name in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
