The autobiography of Robert Dix. Richard Dix is remembered primarily as a Western Movie Star. His starring role in Cimarron, the Academy Award winner for Best Picture in 1931, left a lasting impression. But of the ninety-nine movies he made, the majority were not Westerns. For over three decades, people went to see a Richard Dix Movie no matter what the story line.

Robert Dix grew up in his father’s world, surrounded by the glamour of early Hollywood. Being the son of one of the world’s most loved and admired Hollywood actors opened doors, Robert was acting under contract to MGM Studios at age eighteen. But all was not glitter and glamour. In the shadow of his father’s spotlight, with troubled relationships and addictions, Robert’s life crashed into reality. Read the words of Robert Dix as he tells of his famous family, film career, leading ladies, his loves and losses, and the personal recovery that moved him to share his life’s truth with others.

“True love can get mixed with lust when working under the hot lights with a leading lady. What is greater for the Actor or for anyone? Applause or the truth? In Out of Hollywood, you’ll find my answer.” - Robert Dix
