A lovely brunette from Colorado who somewhat resembled D.W. Griffith star Mae Marsh, diminutive American silent screen actress Molly Malone (born Edith Greaves) starred opposite Harry Carey in several fine Westerns directed by the young John Ford, including the still-extant Straight Shooting (1917), in which she falls for reformed outlaw Carey, and Phantom Riders (1918), a range war melodrama. A versatile actress, Malone supported Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle in several of his Comique comedies and even starred in her own comedy series for producer Al Christie. Her return to the Western genre in the early '20s must have been quite a shock; while the Ford Westerns had been inexpensive but well made, a couple of independent oaters she made opposite Guinn "Big Boy" Williams, Trail of Hate (1922) and Blaze Away (1922), were downright moth-eaten in comparison. By 1925, she had become slightly too mature for such hi-jinks as The Golden Stallion (1925), a furiously paced serial starring Maurice "Lefty" Flynn, and retired two years later.
