The ’80s home of Mary Ann Mobley & Gary Collins (1982)

Mary Ann Mobley, Gary Collins and daughter Clancy live in a Beverly Hills home steeped in southern charm

She is, of course, a former Miss Mississippi, who became Miss America in 1959, and has since been a busy actress.

In November 1967, she wed actor Gary Collins, and they bought this two-story Cape Cod house. (Daughter Clancy, 14, arrived in October 1968.)

The house, decorated by architect-designer Hank Milam, reflects Mary Ann’s southern upbringing and Gary’s easy-going charm.

The host of TV’s Hour Magazine, Gary made this year’s Miss America pageant a family affair when he became the new master of ceremonies.

The Collins-Mobley den

The den is a favorite gathering place. Mary Ann, who had great input in the decorating, hunted down many of the furnishings and paintings herself.
