Ann Carter was born on 16 June 1936 in Syracuse, New York.

She moved to California with her parents when she was three years old.

One of their neighbors, a studio employee, introduced Ann to producer/director Herbert Brenon, who coached her in acting and eventually helped her land a role in The Last of the Duanes in 1941.

When she was five years old, she appeared very briefly in I Married a Witch as the daughter of Wallace Wooley (Fredric March) and Jennifer the witch (Veronica Lake) Ė the resemblance to Lake was so remarkable that many people in Hollywood took notice, and just two short years later she was portraying Amy Reed, the lead role in The Curse of the Cat People.

A number of other small roles followed in films such as And Now Tomorrow, Song of Love, Ruthless and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurís Court. Some of her appearances went surprisingly uncredited, although most of those were admittedly bit parts. Carterís other substantial high-profile role was as daughter to Humphrey Bogart in The Two Mrs. Carrolls for which she won the Critics Award for Top Juvenile Performance at age ten. Her last film appearance was in The Member of the Wedding in 1952 at age 16.

At the time of her passing (from cancer) on January 27, 2014, Ann was married and living in Washington state. She leaves three children. For much more information, please consult her Wikipedia page. (Note that when I started this site in 2006, the Wiki page was only a few sentences long, and concluded with "She died in a car accident at age 42" (1978). I was thrilled to be able to change the page on 12 February 2007 to remove the reference to her erroneously reported death!)
