Karolyn had a small part as a young polio patient in the movie, Sister Kenny. Karolyn remembers meeting Sister Kenny: I did not wear a brace. I was the little girl at the beginning whose name was Carolyn. Rosalind Russell was
working my limbs during that scene. I was in some of the publicity shots
and I found it hard to act like I had no control over my body. I do
remember meeting the real Sister Kenny. She visited the set while I was
there one time. She seemed like a very kind woman and she was showing
Ms. Russell some techniques.
Karolyn is more well known as the youngest daughter of the Jimmy Stewart character in the movie, It's A Wonderful Life. She also had that wonderful line: Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings!
