Mobley graduated from University of Mississippi; she was eventually inducted into the university’s hall of fame. Having won the title of Miss Mississippi in 1958 and Miss America in 1959, Mary went on to pursue her acting career. She debuted in ‘’Get Yourself a College Girl’’, a 1964 comedy film, landing a starring role, which was thought of as a success considering that she had never acted on the big screen before. Receiving positive feedback on her acting skills, Mary was one of the rare beauty pageant contestants to successfully pursue an acting career and keep her fame continuously growing. She went on to appear in several other movies during the mid-‘60s, receiving a Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year in 1965, shortly after her debut. Most of her roles were critically acclaimed and acknowledged – a highlight of that era of her work was playing Princess Shalimar in ‘’Harum Scarum’’ alongside Elvis Presley. Simultaneously, she appeared as a guest star in several television series such as ‘’Perry Mason’’, ‘’Run For Your Life’’ and ‘’Mission Impossible’’ among many others. The last silver screen role she landed was in ‘’For Singles Only’’ in 1968, in which she played a lead role. She went on to focus on television appearances during the subsequent years of her career – one of her noted performances on TV was her portrayal of Maggie McKinney Drummond in ‘’Diff’rent Strokes’’. She continued to appear in several TV shows as a guest star throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, most notably in ‘’Falcon Crest’’, guest-starring in several episodes. By that time she was already widely recognized and her talent was critically acclaimed. She continued to appear in those types of roles during the early 2000s. Mobley’s last television show appearance was in ‘’Dead Like Me’’.

In her personal life, Mobley married American actor Gary Collins in 1967. Couple remained together until 2011, when they separated, but later on reconciled and stayed together until actor’s death in 2012. From more than four decades of their marriage, they had one daughter – Mary Clancy Collins. However, Mary was a step-mother to two of Gary’s children from a previous marriage.

Mobley was widely recognized for her charity work. Shortly after her breakthrough in the acting industry, she received an Outstanding Young Woman of the Year Award in by Claudia Johnson, a first lady of the USA at that time.

Mary had Crohn’s disease and was an outstanding activist for that cause. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and was treated for that disease, but eventually died from its effects on 9 December 2014 at the age of 77, in Beverly Hills, California.
