Cammie King Conlon, R. I. P.

'Gone with the Wind' child actress dies at 76: "Cammie King Conlon, the actress who portrayed the doomed daughter of Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara in 'Gone With the Wind,' has died at the age of 76.
[. . . .]
Conlon was picked to play the small, but pivotal role of Bonnie Blue Butler in the 1939 film at age 4. Her character's death in a fall from a pony irrevocably damages Rhett and Scarlet's tumultuous marriage."

Hat tip to Art Scott.

I went googling to see who was left from that cast - that sort of thing fascinates me for certain movies ('Wizard Of Oz', 'It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World', for instance), thinking Olivia de Havilland might be the only one.

But the article I found listed also Ann Rutherford (as Scarlett's sister), Mickey Kuhn (played Leslie Howard's son) and a Patrick Curtis. But the didn't list him in the cast, so I have no clue who he played.

Anyhoo, it just seems strange that the little girl was outlived by the two adults.....
