Eleanore Cammack "Cammie" King

Los Angeles County
California, USA
Death: Sep. 1, 2010

Mendocino County

Actress. Briefly a child-performer, she is remembered as Bonnie Blue Butler, the daughter of Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler, in the 1939 Oscar-winning classic "Gone With the Wind". Born Eleanore Cammack King, she was raised in Los Angeles, had family contacts in the movie business, was cast as Bonnie Blue for her resemblance to her on-screen parents, and later remembered developing a father figure attachment to Clark Gable. For her final scene after Bonnie was killed in a fall from a pony, the actual fall taken by a dwarf stunt-double, she had to wear a death mask as she could not keep her eyes from fluttering. Her only other film credit was to be the voice of the young doe Faline in Disney's 1942 "Bambi". Cammie went on to earn a 1956 degree in communications from the University of Southern California, worked for a time on the CBS series "Climax!", and spent about 40 years with the Ft. Bragg-Mendocino County Chamber of Commerce. Married twice, she was known in private life as Mrs. King Conlon after 1971. In later years she was to appear frequently at autograph and movie nostalgia shows and was to say of her brief film career: "I peaked in show business at age five". At her death from lung cancer, "Gone With the Wind" continued to be shown twice a day, probably forever, at an Atlanta multiplex. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
