When just a few month old, Carmencita Johnson started appearing in the "Our Gang" shorts. As a child she appeared in some of the better known silent features such as "The Way of All Flesh," "The Winning of Barbara Worth" and "The Wind." She worked in many films in the 30's, and in the 40's she modeled some, acted, and was an occasional stand-in for Lana Turner. She swam in Ester Williams' aquatic movies. Probably her best known scene was on the last movie she worked on, "A Place In The Sun." Besides being one of the Liz Taylor's friends, Carmen doubles for Shelly Winters when the Montgomery Cliff character murders the Winters character by pushing her into the lake (or did he?). Carmencita married in 1949 and soon thereafter retired from film work. She and her husband Jack Robertson moved to Ojai, California, in 1961, where she became a tireless supporter of the arts. She helped form the Arts Advisory Board. She was selected Ojai Valley Woman of the Year in 1985, and was the longtime publicist for artist George Stuart. A number of the films Carmen appeared in have been "lost" including the Academy Award winning movie "The Way of All Flesh." She died in a car accident in September 2000.
