Interesting about Miss USA 1957....
Mary Leona Gage (1939 – 2010) was an American actress, model and beauty queen who was crowned Miss USA 1957, the first from Maryland to capture the Miss USA crown.
She was stripped of her title the next day when it was revealed that she was not a 21-year-old model from Baltimore, but rather a married 18-year old and mother of two children. The crown and prizes subsequently went to the first runner-up, Charlotte Sheffield, Miss Utah.
When news of Gage's marriage broke, she was showered with television appearances. Her subsequent appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” was one of CBS's highest rated shows at the time. With the attention, however, Gage also received hate mail.
In November 1965, Gage was found unconscious in a motel room, overdosed on barbiturates. She was just 26 years old. Her suicide attempt and drug possession led her to spend three weeks at Camarillo State Hospital. Gage's subsequent life was a series of failed marriages and unsuccessful attempts at landing acting roles.Towards the end of her life, when she reflected back on her life choices, she came to realize that she had been preyed upon by an older man who trapped her in a relationship that deprived her of her teenage years and a national title. Gage died alone in 2010 after suffering from chronic lung disease for years.
