Actress Patricia Blair was born in Fort Worth, Texas but grew up in Dallas. She first entered the world of entertainment as a young teenage model, eventually represented by the Conover Agency. She apprenticed in summer stock before Warner Bros. discovered her for films after catching some alluring cheesecake shots of her. The highly photogenic lady did the starlet route starting out with the stage moniker of "Patricia Blake." She appeared as a second female lead in such standard filming as Jump Into Hell (1955), Crime Against Joe (1956), The Black Sleep (1956), which reunited horror icons Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., Basil Rathbone and John Carradine and the suspenser City of Fear (1959) opposite Vince Edwards (I), but not much came out of this promise. True to form she later did a TV pilot entitled "Tramp Ship" opposite Neville Brand but it did not sell. Better things started happening in the early 1960s. She came in for a season in a semi-regular role on "The Rifleman" (1958) replacing actress Joan Taylor (I) as a spunky love interest for Chuck Connors (I). In 1964 she was just about to relocate to New York when screenwriter Gordon Chase submitted her name for the female lead in the series "Daniel Boone" (1964) as Rebecca Boone, the wife of Fess Parker (I) legendary outdoorsman. She won the part and stayed with the show for six profitable seasons. She also made numerous late 50s and 60s TV appearances with such guest credits on "The Bob Cummings Show," "The Virginian," "Perry Mason" and "Bonanza," among others. Little heard of following the demise of the "Boone" TV series in 1970, she appeared in a few minor films and TV spots before dropping completely out of sight. In later years she produced trade shows in New York and New Jersey.
