Mini Bio (1)
Producer Paul Malvern, a former child acrobat with The Ringling Bros. Circus, worked as a movie stuntman during the silent and early talkie eras. While working at low-budget specialist Monogram Pictures, Malvern took over the responsibility of producing films under his newly created "Lone Star Productions" logo. He produced 16 westerns from 1933-35 and worked very closely with John Wayne on his early films. Later in his career Malvern moved over to Universal Studios, where his films generated big business and created a wave of prosperity for the studio that began with the introduction of Deanna Durbin's musicals and lasted until after WW II. 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. He was married for almost 50 years to Jean Huntley, whom he'd met when he fell from a balcony while filming a scene.
