Jack Hoxie was born in Oklahoma in 1885 where he learned how to rope and ride horses at an early age. Upon winning rodeo championships, he attained recognition for his skills. By 1914, he went to Hollywood to become a stuntman where his good looks quickly won over studio executives. However, with the advent of sound, his popularity waned (as happened to many silent stars), so he moved to doing Wild West shows until the 1930s when he retired into obscurity. He passed away in 1965 at the age of 80.
