Carol Brewster

Born: 25 February 1927, Los Angeles, California, USA
Died: 1 February 2013, Big Bear Lake, California, USA
Carol Brewster got her break in showbusiness as a child, working first of all in radio dramas. 
There is some doubt about her birthdate above. In an interview with Skip E. Lowe she said that when making Flamingo Road (September - October 1938) she was only 16 years old. This would put her birthdate around 1932 and not 1927.
