A former tennis champ who later found success in film and television, actress Marian McCargo first entered the acting arena as a supporting player on such popular television shows as Perry Mason and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. The Pittsburgh native received her higher education at Boston's West Hills College before drawing the attention of the public eye by winning the Whiteman Cup, and it wasn't long before McCargo began landing roles on the small screen. Her feature debut in the 1966 crime comedy Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round (a film which also served as the cinematic debut of Harrison Ford) offered a compelling screen presence. Roles in The Undefeated and Doctors' Wives followed shortly thereafter. Throughout the years, McCargo continued to essay roles on the small screen -- most notably with her role as Harriet Roberts on the popular nighttime soap Falcon Crest -- though her marriage to congressman Alphonzo Bell Jr. found her focusing less on career and more on family. On April 7, 2004, Marian McCargo Bell died of pancreatic cancer in Santa Monica, CA. She was 72.
