Actress. Born Margaret Thomas Adams in Greenville, South Carolina, she had a limited motion picture career, seeing only bit, uncredited roles in most of the 15 films she appeared in (she was only credited in 4 of those films). However, she gained renown for her many affairs with Hollywood notables, including an 11 year affair with entertainer George Jessel, and for her 1955 death from accidental overdose of barbiturates, which created much scandal and sensationalism at the time.  Family links:  Spouse:  Lyle Talbot (1902 – 1996)
