In Edendale (between Glendale Blvd. and Teviot), silent film mega star Tom Mix built a 12 acre shooting set called Mixville. Loaded with western props and furnishings, it has been described as a “complete frontier town, with a dusty street, hitching rails, a saloon, jail, bank, doctor’s office, surveyor’s office, and the simple frame houses typical of the early Western era.” Near the back of the lot an Indian village of lodges was ringed by miniature plaster mountains which on screen were said to be “ferociously convincing.” The set also included a simulated desert, large corral and a ranch house with no roof, to facilitate interior shots.

Bob Siler grew up in Burbank, not far from Universal Studios and Warner Brothers where they made his favorite monster movies.  A long-time fan of Westerns, he still has a hard time believing that the great John Wayne could die.  Bob has created many lists detailing where the famous and infamous lived, are buried, and the cars they drove.  He has recently completed this list of Western Stars homes after many years.  Burbank Bob now resides in Portland, Oregon.

    Tex Ritter was not living at 4402 Moorpark Way (which no longer exists) in at least the early 60’s. He was living at 10063 Toluca Lake, a house built in 1934 (not 1937 as most realty websites have) for Luther Barrick, sold in 1937 to Lloyd Bacon (who had additions made which probably explains the 1937 date). Several LA Times articles show the Ritters living on Toluca Lake during at least 1960 to 62 so not sure where the Moorpark comes in although I have seen that address on other websites. In 1938 he is actually listed in the directories at 5602 Fernwood. I have not found him legitimately on Moorpark in any reputable source. Hope this is helpful, I know how it can be difficult when there are so many sources out there! I have an online subscription with some limited access to LA Times.
