Hale attended Rockford High School and matriculated in 1940. She then attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts with aspirations of becoming an artist. While attending there, she had to model to help pay for her education, which eventually led to her acting career.

In 1943, Barbara moved to Hollywood and would appear uncredited in many films; her first official credited role would be in “Gildersleeve’s Bad Day”. Throughout this period, she was under contract to RKO Radio Pictures which would lead her to a string of films, which included “Higher and Higher” in which would display her singing prowess alongside Frank Sinatra. She also became the lead of “West of the Pecos” and “Lady Luck” which would boost her to stardom. In 1949, she appeared in “The Window” alongside Arthur Kennedy, and would co-star in the film “Jolson Sings Again”. Two years later, she became the lead actress in “Lorna Doone” and would also star in “The Jackpot” with James Stewart. In the next few years, other projects she would become a part of included “The Far Horizons” and “A Lion Is in the Streets”, all contributing to her net worth.

In 1957, Hale was cast in the television series “Perry Mason” which essentially ended her movie career as she also became a part of 30 “Perry Mason” television movies after the run of the series. She appeared in “The Oklahoman” in 1957, and would then make several guest appearances in various series, including “Ironside” in 1971. Aside from these appearances, she was also active on radio though not as much compared to her television work.

Aside from her acting career, Barbara was a spokesperson for Amana which were responsible for the Radarange microwave ovens. In 1960, she was recognized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and won an Emmy Award in 1959 for her television work. She also received the Golden Boot Award in 2001 for her contribution to the cinema.

For her personal life, it is known that Barbara married actor Bill Williams in 1946 and they have three children; the couple met during the filming of “West of the Pecos”. Bill died of cancer in 1992. Their son, William Katt would become an actor and also appeared in several “Perry Mason” movies.

#Quote
1 [about making West of the Pecos (1945)] I told the director, Edward Killy, about casting a smaller role in the film for Bill Williams [her future husband]. Killy was sort of a stocky man, and had a cigar. He was a short man, and that cigar was about as big as he was . . . He smoked all the time! But he said, "Sure, Barb, I'll get Bill Williams up here in Lone Pine". He knew I had a crush on Bill. So Killy said, "I'll give him one scene at the beginning of the shoot and another at the end of the picture, so Bill can stay the whole time!". That was so nice of him.
2 [about her marriage to Bill Williams] It took me two years to talk him into marrying me.
