Personal Fact of Maggie McNamara

Marguerite “Maggie” McNamara was an American film, television and stage actress who made her debut in the glamour world as a model during her teens. Discovered by director Otto Preminger, she made her onstage debut playing Patty O’Neill in the Chicago production and later briefly at the New York production of the play The Moon Is Blue. She reprised her role in the director’s film version of the play, which although remained a subject of controversy at that time but nevertheless emerged a huge box-office success.

The film not only brought her limelight but also earned her an Academy Award nomination. By the time she did her second film she was at the peak of her career. However the limelight soon faded away and she did only a few films thereafter, the final being the 1963 film The Cardinal. Her meteoric rise to fame in a short span of time was followed by a decline, both of which happened in the 1950s.

Many connect this downfall with her refusal to do publicity for films she worked in or with the emotional setbacks that she was facing due to her troubled marriage. Her later acting career saw her doing a bit of stage work and making guest appearances in a few television series. After retiring from acting in the early 1960s, she led the rest of her life in New York City working as typist. At 49 years of age the once petite and slender beauty took her own life with an overdose of sleeping pills leaving behind her fans, admirers, well-wishers and acquaintances.
