Actress Mary Murphy has died at 80. She was discovered in a coffee shop and landed a role as the small-town wholesome girl opposite Marlon Brando in "The Wild One."
Daughter Stephanie Specht tells the Los Angeles Times that Murphy died May 4 of heart disease at her Beverly Hills home.
Murphy had several roles in 1950s films, including "The Desperate Hours,""Beachhead,""A Man Alone,""Sitting Bull" and "The Mad Magician."
But she's best-known as the innocent in a town terrorized by a biker gang led by Brando.
Murphy was a package wrapper at Saks Fifth Avenue on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills when she was discovered in a nearby coffee shop by a Paramount Pictures talent scout.
