After attending Mather College in Cleveland, Ohio, Carter headed to New York in an attempt to start an opera career. Although her attempt was a failure, she did end up working on Broadway where she was spotted on stage by Darryl F. Zanuck who was impressed by the young actor/singer and signed her to a movie deal.

Carter, after moving to Hollywood, appeared in over 30 films beginning in 1941 for 20th Century Fox, MGM, Columbia, and RKO. She appeared in the films Night Editor (1946) and Framed (1947) with Glenn Ford and the Flying Leathernecks (1951) with John Wayne.

After leaving Los Angeles, Carter returned to New York and found work in television in comedies, dramas, and even as hostess for a quiz show, Feather Your Nest, working with Bud Collyer.

Personal life

She was married to Carl Prager from 1942 to 1951, but divorced him. In 1956, she quit show business after marrying Julius Stulman, New York lumber and shipping tycoon, in 1956. They remained together until her death. She died from a heart attack, on July 30, 1994, aged 80, in Durham, North Carolina.
