Susan Cummings (born Susanne Gerda Tafel; 10 July 1930, Bavaria, Germany) is a German-American actress of the 1950s and 1960s who appeared in several television shows and films. From 1958 to 1959, she portrayed Georgia, proprietress of the Golden Nugget Saloon, in the syndicated Western television series Union Pacific. She made two guest appearances on Perry Mason — one as Lois Fenton in the title role in the 1957 episode, "The Case of the Fan Dancer's Horse", and as Maxine Starrett in the 1959 episode, "The Case of the Lame Canary". She appeared as Patty in the iconic 1962 episode of The Twilight Zone, "To Serve Man", in which she deciphers an alien manifesto called To Serve Man and yells "It's a cookbook!" in a vain attempt to save the lead character.
