The 39-year-old Montez died after apparently suffering a heart attack and drowning in her bath. Her portrayal of the dipso-nymphomaniac daughter of a Texas oil baron won her the Academy Award as Best Supporting Actress. She also wrote 3 books, two of which were published, as well as penning a number of poems. In 1956, Malone dyed her hair blonde to co-star with Rock Hudson, Lauren Bacall, and Robert Stack in director Douglas Sirk's melodrama, Written on the Wind. There, Maria Montez appeared in several films and a play written by her husband. Much of her early career was spent in supporting roles in Grade-B Westerns, although on occasion she had the opportunity to play small but memorable roles, such as that of the young, brainy, lusty, bespectacled bookstore clerk in The Big Sleep, with Humphrey Bogart, in 1946. At War's end, the couple had a daughter, Maria Christina, born in Hollywood in 1946 following which they moved to a home in Suresnes, Île-de-France in the eastern suburb of Paris, France.

She was born as Dorothy Eloise Maloney on January 30, 1925.

Dorothy Malone is an American actress. Over her career, Maria Montez appeared in 26 films, 21 of which were made in North America and five in Europe. Dubbed the "The Queen of Technicolor," she made her film debut in 1940 opposite Johnny Mack Brown, marking a career that saw her much loved by audiences, usually in adventure films as the beautiful damsel in distress. Her screen image was crafted as that of a hot-blooded Latin seductress, playing characters dressed in exotic costumes and sparking jewels.

Eventually she accepted an offer from a Hollywood film studio. Determined to become a stage actress, she hired an agent and created a résumé that made her several years younger by listing her birth as 1917 in some instances and 1918 in others. Her marriage lasted several years but in 1939 she ended up in New York City where her exotic looks landed her a job as a model. At a young age, she taught herself to speak English, and in 1932 she married William McFeeters, an American banker working in her seaside home town of Barahona.
