Mary Hughes

Mary Hughes was a beautiful blond who appeared in a number of the "Beach movies" during the 1960s. I spoke with a former actor who knew Ms. Hughes. He stated she died of cancer, but he had heard it from a friend of a friend's wife. Never any confirmation in the news. He did not know the date of death either. Ms. Hughes supposedly died of cancer this year in Malibu California. If anyone has more specific information, please let me know.

I loved the beach movies and I loved Mary Hughes. She was ahead of her time.

Mary was perfect in the beach movies. She personified the whole California look. She also dated rock great Jeff Beck in the mid sixties. He even wrote a little song called Psycho Daiseys in her honor where she is mentioned twice.
RIP Mary

She is infamous in the history of early Rock Music for tempting the Well Respected & unorthodox Guitarist "Jeff Beck" out of the Yardbirds. which may have indirectly influenced the future formation of Led Zeppelin when Jimmy page took over lead guitar in The Yardbirds which transformed later to "The New Yardbirds" who became Led Zeppelin. I thought though that she was a Doctor but I assume now she wasn't. Maybe that was an allabi Beck used to fool the Band...he was just seeing his Doctor, When he should have been on stage!
