Marian Stafford (February 7, 1931 – August 16, 1984) was an American actress and model. She was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for the March 1956 issue.[1] Her centerfold was photographed by Ruth Sondak, and was the first to consist of three pages.[2]

In addition to posing for other men's magazines in the decade, Stafford became a popular personality during the so-called "Golden Age" of television. She was a regular on game shows such as Treasure Hunt and The $64,000 Question.

Stafford died on August 16, 1984, at the age of 53. She was survived by her husband, television writer and producer, Robert Foshko.[3]
