Biography by Hal Erickson

Onetime Powers model Michele Carey entered films in 1967. Touted as a discovery of Howard Hawks, Carey was cast in the principal female lead in Hawks' El Dorado, where she took a back seat to the macho antics of John Wayne and Robert Mitchum. She was a bit more noticeable as Elvis Presley's vis-à-vis in Live a Little, Love a Little (1968) and as an anachronistically miniskirted Indian girl in Frank Sinatra's Dirty Dingus Magee (1970). Fading from view in the early '70s, Michele Carey staged a brief comeback in the mid-'80s in such films as In the Shadow of Kilimanjaro (1986).
