~Studio Portrait of Mahlon Hamilton~
~Biography~
A graduate of Maryland Agriculture College and a popular stage actor, tall, handsome Mahlon
Hamilton entered films with Metro in 1915 and quickly established himself as a fine leading man
opposite such powerful female stars as Olga Petrova, Louise Glaum, and Marion Davies. He reached
something of a pinnacle as the wealthy guardian whom Mary Pickford grows up to marry in the
extremely popular Daddy Long Legs (1919) but it was all downhill from there for the actor, who
mostly starred in programmers in the 1920s. Surviving the transition to sound, Hamilton continued
playing supporting roles and bit parts onscreen until at least 1949. In his final years, he resided at the
Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA.
