A huge cast supported pudgy western star Leo Maloney in The Apache Raider, a typically threadbare silent oater in which a cattle thief (Tom London is backed by a group of corrupt politicians. Maloney is on to the villain, however, and takes it upon himself to return the cattle. Soon he is accused of rustling himself and about to be lynched. The townspeople discover their error in time, and the hero is cleared of all wrong-doing. Third-billed Don Coleman signed a contract with Maloney, who starred the handsome former rodeo-rider in four none-too-successful westerns. Maloney, himself a prolific silent screen auteur, never made the top rung of the cowboy ladder either, succumbing instead to alcoholism, dead at the age of 41.
