They say that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" Even though Allison Hayes might not win an Academy Award she gave every role her undivided attention making Hayes an unforgettable actress and it didn't hurt to be positively stunning. Even before Allison Hayes became a cult figure for her starring role in The Attack Of The Fifty Foot Woman (1958, Warner Brothers) she was definitely a head-turner and in describing Hayes' figure the word "Buxom" comes to mind. Never mind the bad screenplay or the cheesy special effects that all goes away when you see the poster and how it immortalized Allison Hayes as an icon of feminine strength. Allison Hayes (then Mary Jane) Hayes was born (March 6, 1930) on a military base in Charleston, west V*rginia, and grew up in Washington D.C. An accomplished pianist, she considered a career in music, but in 1949 the raven haired statuesque beauty was invited to represent D.C. in the Miss America Pageant. Her next big break reportedly came at a party she attended with an embassy secretary . On seeing her, Mrs. Earl Warren, wife of the Supreme Court Justice, remarked, "What a pretty girl. She ought to be in movies." A talent scout happened to over hear Mrs Warren's comment and Allison Hayes was offered a screen test. Changing her name to Allison, she signed on with Universal in 1954, eventually leaving the studio to be a free agent. In her screen debut, Francis Joins the WACS (1954),Hayes was a supporting actress to the talking mule, which had the title role. Her second film, Sign of the Pagan (1954, Universal) provided her with an important role in a relatively minor film. Opposite Jack Palance, she played the part of a siren who ultimately kills him. Allison Hayes proved once again she could hold her own against such talented actors like Van Heflin or newcomer Joanne Woodward in Count Three and Pray (1955 Columbia), however, Hayes described the role of Georgina Decrais as the best of her career. Her other costars were Raymond Burr and Philip Carey. As the arrogant Southern belle she was in love with Van Heflin, and after being spurned by him, Hayes is reduced to becoming Burr’s live-in "housekeeper." Hayes had several well-played dramatic scenes. However, when the film was released much of the attention of reviewers was focused on Woodward (who was making her screen debut), and Hayes was largely ignored. Hayes finally hit her stride in the late 1950s, when she starred in a succession of shamelessly trashy horror flicks: Zombies of Mora Tau (1957), The Undead (1957), The Unearthly (1957), The Disembodied (1957), and one of her better performances was as Justine in The Hypnotic Eye (1960) and of course the film that Allison Hayes will be remembered for The Attack Of The 50-Foot Woman (1958). In 1958 she appeared in the recurring role of Ellie Winters, the beautiful poker dealer / secret agent, in seven episodes of the popular western series Bat Masterson starring Gene Barry. A close friend of Raymond Burr since filming Count Three and Pray, she made five guest appearances on his Perry Mason series during this time, including the role of Pearl Chute in the 1962 episode, "The Case of the Bogus Books." By the early 1960s Hayes was doing more television work with regular roles on Acapulco, and General Hospital. Allison was a versatile actress; she did drama very well, as when she guest-starred on the television series The Untouchables (1959), in the highly-rated episode, The Untouchables: The Rusty Heller Story (1960). Allison also had a flair for comedy, which she demonstrated when she appeared in the Dean Martin film, Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed? (1963, Paramount Pictures). Her last film appearance was with "The King", himself, Elvis Presley in Tickle Me (1965, Allied Artists), with a hilarious script by the legendary writer Elwood Ullman. As her acting career declined, she began to experience severe health problems, and was unable to walk without a cane. In severe pain, her usually good-natured personality began to change and she became emotional and volatile, making it difficult for her to secure acting work. Hayes later said that the pain of her illness caused her to contemplate suicide, and that her symptoms were not taken seriously by doctors. Reading a medical book about the metal poisoning of factory workers, Hayes recognized the symptoms described as being similar to her own. Hayes began to question the ingredients of a calcium supplement she had been taking for a long time and when she employed a toxicologist to test a sample of the product, he determined that it had an extremely high content of lead and concluded that Hayes was most likely suffering from lead poisoning. Hayes mounted a campaign to have the FDA ban the import or sale of the food supplement. An invalid, Hayes moved to San Clemente, California and her health continued to deteriorate. In 1976, she was diagnosed with leukemia and was treated regularly at La Jolla. While at the hospital receiving a blood transfusion, her condition unexpectedly and rapidly deteriorated as she experienced chills, flu-like symptoms and intense pain. She was transferred to the University of California Medical Center in San Diego on February 26, 1977, where she died the following day, one week before her 47th birthday. Allison Hayes will always be remembered for her roles on the big screen but she also will be remembered for this as well; A letter arrived after her death, the FDA advised her that amendments were being made to the laws governing the importation of nutritional supplements, largely as a result of her situation.
