Carroll was born in 1931 in Johnstown. The official start of her career is considered to be a cameo role in the film "Easy to Love" in '53.
However, the real flowering of the girl's acting skills took place on Broadway. Regular facial features, slightly lowered corners of the lips, an innocent face – all this provided Carroll with recognition and popularity.
The girl showed herself best in dramatic films. It was the "Doll" that brought Carroll the Golden Globe as the most potentially successful talent of the year. She was also nominated for a BAFTA and an Oscar.
In 1964, Carroll signed a contract with Paramount Pictures and starred in the movie "Bigwigs". It was a cardinal turn in her work, from a somewhat naive and feminine image to a more liberated and sexy one.
This girl was dreamed of not only in the USA, but also in Europe and even in Africa. After the filming of "Mr. Moses" was completed, the actress heard a rumor that the Maasai chief was giving 150 cows, 200 sheep and goats for her, and $750 in addition, the treasury of his entire tribe.
In 1965, Carroll played the role of Harlow in the film of the same name. The film grossed more than $ 13 million at the box office, at the same time the first problems of the actress with the studio began.
Despite the frankness of the roles and photo sets, Carroll was modest and protested against nude scenes. As a result of a long showdown, the contract was terminated, and the actress left the United States.
The same period is considered the sunset of her professional career. For the next 10 years, she starred in several dramatic films, but they did not return the love of the audience to her.
Until 2003, the actress took part in various projects. She has released two autobiographies and a novella. Now she is 87, she is engaged in a family and her own home.
This is the story of the sex bomb, which has become a symbol of eroticism involuntarily. Do you think Carroll should have continued his collaboration with Paramount Pictures?
