Michele Carey (born 26 February 1943, Annapolis, Maryland) is an American actress. She was also a child piano prodigy and a model. Touted as a discovery of Howard Hawks, she made her film debut in Hawks' El Dorado (1966), starring John Wayne and Robert Mitchum. She went on to co-star in the Elvis Presley musical Live a Little, Love a Little (1968), The Sweet Ride (1968), and played an anachronistically miniskirted Indian girl in Frank Sinatra's Dirty Dingus Magee (1970). That same year she also made Five Savage Men with Henry Silva and Keenan Wynn.
On television she did guest-starring roles on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1966), Mission Impossible (1969), It Takes a Thief (1970), and three episodes of The Wild Wild West ("The Night of the Feathered Fury", 1967 and the two-part "The Night of the Winged Terror" 1969) and held the title roll in the Jan 17, 1972 episode of Gunsmoke entitled Tara.
Fading from view in the early '70s, Carey staged a brief comeback in the mid-'80s in such films as In the Shadow of Kilimanjaro (1986). She also appeared as Crystal in a 1982 episode of the television series The Fall Guy.
Famous quotes containing the word carey:
“... my one aim and concentrated purpose shall be and is to show that women can learn, can reason, can compete with men in the grand fields of literature and science ... that a woman can be a woman and a true one without having all her time engrossed by dress and society.”
—M. Carey Thomas (18571935)
