Cast in The Ten Commandments (1956), De Carlo was finally part of a major hit. For the next several years, she was constantly working although many of the films failed to advance her career. As the female lead opposite Burt Lancaster in Criss Cross, De Carlo played a dangerous femme fatale, and her career began to ascend.

In 1947 she played her first leading role in Slave Girl and then in 1949 had her biggest success. Though not a critical success it was a box office favorite and De Carlo was hailed as an up and coming star. Her break came in 1945 playing the title role in Salome, Where She Danced. She made her first film appearance in 1942, but could only find bit parts for the next few years.

De Carlo supported herself working in a chorus while trying to find film work. Unable to find work, they returned to Canada until 1940, when they once again traveled to Hollywood. Born Peggy Yvonne Middleton in Vancouver, British Columbia, the daughter of an ambitious but unsuccessful aspiring actress, De Carlo was taken to Hollywood by her mother at the age of fifteen.
