Carole was spotted while she was playing baseball with a couple of neighborhood boys. The film direction who spotted her had her sign a one picture contract in 1921. Carole was only twelve at the time, and starred in the film A Perfect Crime later that year. Carole did start to try out for a couple of acting jobs, but would not appear on the screen again until four years later. For a time Carole lived a normal life. She went to school, excelled in field and track, and participated in athletics. When she fifteen she grew fed up with school and quit instead.
