located in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California.
Several early Westerns were filmed at the studio, which overlooked
orange groves and included a small city that housed thirty five
permanent residents. The last film he directed and produced, "Overland
Bound," was one of the first all talking pictures. Maloney
died at the Hotel Astor after eight weeks of drinking. His death
was attributed to acute alcoholism. He resided at 440 North Alfred
