Nancy Gates


American film and television actress who starred or co-starred in 34 films and serials, plus making a total of 55 television appearances.

Gates entered acting at a young age, receiving a contract with RKO at the age of 15. Her first screen appearance, uncredited, was in the 1942 film "The Magnificent Ambersons." That same year she had her first credited role, in "The Great Gildersleeve." She received roles in mostly B-movies, many of which were westerns or sci-fi, eventually landing lead roles as the heroine. She starred in several films, especially in westerns like "Comanche Station" (1960), and in support roles, most notably in two Frank Sinatra films, "Some Came Running" and "Suddenly." She also made appearances on the television series "Maverick," "Perry Mason," "Lux Video Theater," and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents."

Gates retired in 1969 to be closer to her family. Her husband, Hollywood attorney and business manager J. William Hayes, died in 1992. They had four children, including Hollywood producers Jeffrey M. Hayes and Chip Hayes.
