According to Hollywood lore, red-headed Mary Castle was awarded a contract with Columbia Pictures due solely to the fact that she resembled that company's greatest star Rita Hayworth. (A rather scurrilous rumor had Castle actually forced into undergoing plastic surgery to become Hayworth's double!) The results were a few minor Westerns, including Prairie Roundup (1951), a Charles Starrett oater; Texans Never Cry (1951), opposite Gene Autry; and When the Redskins Rode (1951). She defected to Universal but was only offered more of the same, including Gunsmoke (1953) with Audie Murphy. In 1955, Castle replaced Kristine Miller as Jim Davis' leading lady in Republic Pictures' only attempt at television, the anthology series Stories of the Century. Her screen career lasted until 1960.
