Producer. Malvern, a former child acrobat with The Ringling Bros. Circus, worked as a movie stuntman during silent and early talkie films. While working at the Monogram Studios, Malvern took over the responsibility of producing films under his newly created “Lone Star Productions” logo. He produced 16 westerns from 1933 to 1935 and worked very closely with actor John Wayne on his early films. Later in his career, Malvern moved over to Universal Studios where his films generated big business for the studio and created a wave of prosperity for the studio that began with the introduction of Deanna Durbin’s musicals and lasted until after WWII. Malvern retired in 1952 to take care of his stepson who was ill with cancer, and his wife who wasn’t in the best of health. Paul was married for nearly fifty years to actress Jean Huntley, whom he’d met when he fell from a balcony while filming a scene.
