Carla Tate made her movie debut when she was six days old. She spent her childhood at the Little Red Schoolhouse on the MGM lot. At seven she gave testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee. By adolescence she was a veteran, having appeared in a series of films that made her the envy of every little girl in America. Before she was twenty, she had a husband and a lover. At age thirty-nine, after three marriages, three children, and a scor of films, she was an enduring international star.
Then she died. Mysteriously.
