‘Gone With the Wind’s’ Bonnie Blue Butler dies

King's showbiz career was short

Cammie King, who played the adorable daughter of Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone With the Wind,” died Sept. 1 in Fort Bragg, Calif., of cancer. She was 76.

King as a 4-year-old played Bonnie Blue Butler who falls off a horse and dies in the bigscreen adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s Civil War epic. She attended fan conventions and anniversaries for the pic, including a 1989 event in Atlanta, when she told a panel audience that she was paid $1,000 for her role in the pic.

King’s other showbiz role was voiceover work in Disney’s “Bambi.”

“I peaked in show business at age 5,” she said.

After graduating from USC, King worked at the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce and launched its film commission. Last year she published her memoir, “Bonnie Blue Butler: A Gone With the Wind Memoir.”

Survivors include a son, a daughter and three grandchildren.
