Karen Carpenter (1950-1983)

  1. Kim Darby, True Grit, 1968.      John Wayne suggested the anorexic Carpenter after loving her effervescence when he was judging a TV talent show. Producer Hal B Wallis wanted a name or an actress, not an unknown singer.   He looked over many possible Matties. Geneviève Bujold (who became Wallis’ Anne of the Thousand Days), Mia Farrow, Sally Field, Jaclyn Smith, Tuesday Weld. Plus past and future Duke co-stars Michele El Dorado Carey and Jennifer Rio Lobo Neill. Plus Duke’s teenage daughter Aissa. Director Henry Hathaway was not satisfied with Darby. Karen’s only acting was in a Disco telepisode, 1975.
