Personal Quote:

I starred and co-starred in approximately 30 motion pictures, mostly low-budget films, where you usually did everything in one take. I often wonder if some of the superstars of today could do that and even be adequate. See more »


Margia was offered roles on Broadway following the attention she received at the "Miss America Pageant," but instead went back home to finish high school and married her teenage sweetheart, Hal Fischer, in 1939 at age 17. Fischer went on to become a second-string All-American player and well-known basketball coach. The marriage did not last (less than six years) but the two remained friends. See more »
