Sadly for Maggie it was all downhill after that sterling debut. She only made a couple of films before getting married and retiring to raise a family. After the breakup of her marriage, she returned to acting with memorable guest shots on both The Twilight Zone and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour before her career petered out altogether.
