Actrice de 70 ans (19 octobre 1948)
Mimi Gibson is a former child actress. After the early death of her father, her mother took her and her sister to Los Angeles. At only 18 months, she was a popular calendar model, posing with cute animals. By age two she was appearing in movies. During the 1950s and early 1960s she would appear in 35 movies and over 100 TV programs. Her last roles came as a teenage girlfriend in episodes of My Three Sons in the late 1960s.
In 1957 she and child actress Evelyn Rudie played the daughters of John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in The Wings of Eagles. Although they had some significant scenes, she and Rudie were not credited. The same year she was in the horror B-movie The Monster That Challenged the World.
In 1958 she had a role as Cary Grant's daughter — with Paul Petersen and Charles Herbert playing her brothers — in the light romantic comedy Houseboat. Sophia Loren co-starred. Gibson said, "I'd like to be remembered for Houseboat." She said "Houseboat was fun, wonderful and I loved it".
They filmed Houseboat for a month on location in Washington, D.C. The actual houseboat was on the Virginia side of the Potomac River. The scene at the amusement park was filmed at Glen Echo Amusement Park, on the northern side of the river. When the movie was done, Loren gave Gibson a pendant with a houseboat on one side and "To Mimi from Sophia" on the other. Grant gave each of the kids a $50 savings bond-a large sum in those days.
