Mara Corday (featured on the 1955 "Tarantula!" theatrical release poster by Reynold Brown)


American showgirl, model, actress, Playboy Playmate (October 1958), and 1950s cult figure, a dark-haired beauty with an hourglass 35-24-35 inch figure. Her acting roles were small until 1955, when she was cast opposite John Agar and Leo G. Carroll in the successful science-fiction film Tarantula!. She had two other co-starring roles in the genre, The Black Scorpion and The Giant Claw (both 1957), as well as in a number of Western films, including Man Without a Star and Raw Edge. From 1959 to early 1961, Corday worked exclusively doing guest spots on various television series.

Following the 1955 death of Suzan Ball, the first wife of actor Richard Long, Corday began dating Long, and they married in 1957. Through Long's sister Barbara, Corday was a sister-in-law of actor Marshall Thompson. In the early 1960s, Corday gave up her career to devote herself to raising a family. Widowed in 1974, Long and she had three children during their 17-year marriage. Corday has been a lifelong friend of actor Clint Eastwood, whom she met while working for Universal Pictures.
