CammieCammie King Conlon, one of ten living cast members from the 1939 film Gone With The Wind, lives in Fort Bragg, Calif., on the remote Mendocino Coast. She was five years old when she played “Bonnie,” the headstrong daughter of Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) in the classic.     

            After retiring in 2000 from “my real job,” as she puts it, Cammie traveled the country making personal appearances and talking about Gone With The Wind.  She has delighted fans in dozens of cities throughout the country including Charleston, SC;  Atlanta, Jonesboro, Marietta, Savannah and Washington in Georgia;, Cape Cod.    Jefferson Texas, Lawrenceburg Tennessee, and Branson, Missouri.  

            Cammie King was born, raised and schooled in Los Angeles (a graduate of USC) where she married and had two children. 

            Following her role as “Bonnie Blue” she did the voice of young “Faline” in Bambi, and then quit the movie business.  “My mother decided she wanted me to have a normal childhood,” she explains.

            She moved to Northern California in 1980 where she served ten years as marketing coordinator for the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce.  Currently, she is public relations representative for Little River Inn.

            Cammie noted,  “I’ve worked in public relations 45 years, been a wife and mom, and no matter what I did, my role in Gone With The Wind is what captures people’s interest.”    She deadpans, “In other words, I peaked at age five.”
