Leo D. Maloney
Birth: Jan. 4, 1888
Santa Rosa
Sonoma County
California, USA
Death: Nov. 2, 1929
New York
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA

Actor, Director, Producer. He appeared in 102 films, beginning in 1914. During the 1920's he owned the Leo Maloney Studio, a self-contained city in the San Bernadino Mountains that housed 35 employees who lived there year-round. Scores of westerns were shot there, including 40 Maloney directed himself. Long an alcoholic, Maloney suffered a heart attack after a party celebrating the completion of "Overland Bound" (1929), his only talkie. Ill and unable to shoulder the cost of sound production, he sold his studio in 1929 and went to New York City. There, over a period of two months, he drank himself to death. Maloney's body was found in his room at the Hotel Astor, surrounded by empty liquor bottles. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
