Biography

Molly Malone was an actress who began during the early days of silent film. She was born in Wisconsin. She didn't get her first role in motion pictures until 1917, in The Pulse of Life (1917), making her a late bloomer in the film industry. By then she was 29, several years older than most actresses just starting out. Once she got her start, though, Molly was kept very busy. The twenties proved especially busy for her, with appearances in films such as Sure Fire (1921), Across the Deadline (1922), Battling Bunyan (1924), and Rawhide (1926). She retired from the big screen after The Golden Stallion (1927). On February 14, 1952, Molly died of natural causes in Los Angeles, California. She was 63 years old.
