Margaret Field, RIP

MALIBU, Calif. — Margaret Field O’Mahoney, who used the stage name Margaret Field when she appeared in dozens of TV and movie roles from the 1940s to the 1970s, died at her home here Nov. 6, after a six-year struggle with cancer. She may be best remembered at the star of the 1951 sci-fi classic “The Man From Planet X.” She was 89. Her daughter is actress Sally Field, and she died on her daughter’s birthday.
Field gave up acting in her mid-thirties to focus on family and eventually helped raise her seven grandchildren.
MSTies may remember her very last role, as a nurse in the TV movie “The Stranger,” shown in episode 305- STRANDED IN SPACE.
