The Mystery Gets Revealed!!!

Alright, this one was, shall we say, perhaps a little left field.

The beauty in question is Margaret Field.

Margaret has a list on imdb of 91 performances!  They begin in 1945 and conclude in 1973.  She belonged to that grand tradition of "working actor".  If you turned on series or anthology television in the 50s and early 60s you would frequently find Margaret.

As a young divorcee with two small children in the early 50s, Margaret married stuntman/actor Jock Mahoney and so you might also see her work credited to Maggie Mahoney, and handle she sometimes used.

Sadly, many people don't know or recognize Margaret, but they're almost certain to be familiar with her first born child, Sally.

Margaret, at age 89, passed away November 6, 2011, on Sally's 65th birthday.

Didn't know her or remember her, but she raised a fine daughter.

Sally said Jock was a son of a bitch.

I've never heard of her. However, I can always count on you for a great bit of Hollywood history. Thanks! I still adore the chair.
