~Silent Filmography~
Very active at Universal in the 1910s, brunette American silent screen actress Cleo Madison usually
played rather robust heroines, notably in the serials Trey of Hearts (1914) and The Great Radium
Mystery (1919). Madison was one of several studio contract actresses given the opportunity to also go
behind the camera, in her case as writer, producer, and even director. Eleanor's Catch (1916), in which
she also starred, survives and, if nothing else, proves that Madison was just as capable as her male
counterparts of delivering the studio's trademark, fast-paced, no-nonsense programmers, on time
and within the limited budget. Madison's screen career lasted until 1924.
