The Great K & A Train Robbery, filmed in Glenwood Springs, is a 1926 American Western silent film directed by Lewis Seiler and starring Tom Mix and Dorothy Dwan. The film is based on the actual foiling of a train robbery by Dick Gordon as related by Paul Leicester Ford in his book The Great K & A Train Robbery originally published as a serial in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1896.
Much of the film was shot on location in and around Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The film is notable for its use of breathtaking locations including shots along the Colorado River. Local residents gathered every day for three weeks to watch Mix and his famous horse, Tony, perform their own stunts. Many locals were used as extras. Mix brought the fifty-five cast and crew members, along with his family, to Colorado in two Pullman train cars along with two special baggage cars.
Starring Tom Mix, Dorothy Dwan
