Margaret Hayes (December 5, 1916 - January 26, 1977) was an American film and television actress.
Born December 5, 1916 (although the U.S. census for 1920 lists her as age 6) Florette Regina Ottenheimer in Baltimore, Maryland, she was often billed as Maggie Hayes in her film credits. She is perhaps best known for her role as Lois Judby Hammond in the film Blackboard Jungle (1955). Hayes played opposite Keith Andes in the role of Dorothy Maguire Grevemberg, wife of crusading Louisiana State Police superintendent Francis Grevemberg, in the film Damn Citizen (1958). Gene Evans also co-starred.
Hayes made four guest appearances on Perry Mason: in 1957 she played defendant Sybil Granger in "The Case of the Nervous Accomplice". In 1960 she made two appearances: as Vivian Bell in "The Case of the Ominous Outcast," and Joyce Gilbert in "The Case of the Clumsy Clown." In 1963 she played Leslie Rankin in "The Case of the Reluctant Model."
She married a Mr. Debusky in Baltimore, Maryland and had one child, Nan in 1937. She subsequently married actor Leif Erickson in 1942, but they divorced after a month. She married a third time, to producer Herbert B. Swope, Jr., in 1947 and she had a daughter, Tracy Brooks Swope, who is also an actress. She and Swope divorced in 1973.
