As a child, Carmencita Johnson acted in the "Little Rascals" movie series. When she turned 20, she began to work as a synchronized swimmer in Esther Williams aquatic movies. Her resemblance to the actress Lana Turner also got her work as Turner's stand-in during the 1940's. Carmencita married in 1949, retiring from film work. She and her husband moved to Ojai, California, in 1961, where she became a tireless supporter of the arts. She helped form the Arts Advisory Board.
