Mary Parker (a.k.a. "Punkins Parker") was born Mary Frances Roberson in 1918. She was discovered in her hometown of Fort Worth Texas while performing as part of the Texas Centennial of 1936 at the famous Casa Manana. She was a starlet with Paramount at first, but was given roles in several large budget films from 1918 to the early 1950's. Picked by Max Factor Jr. as "The Real Miss America", Mary was always considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. Best known as a dancer, Mary performed throughout the United States on both film and on the Broadway stage (along with three USO tours in Europe during World War II). When she returned to Fort Worth in the late 1940's, she had her own TV show, and operated a dance studio for many years. Mary died in 1998 at the age of 79.
