The daughter of screenwriter Tom Geraghty and sister of writers Maurice Geraghty and Gerald Geraghty, Carmelita Geraghty was a graduate of Hollywood High School, where she was in charge of the school calendar. Voted a WAMPAS Baby Star in 1924, she spent most of her career as a leading lady, playing with Reed Howes and Estelle Taylor's husband, former heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey.

With the advent of sound Carmelita's star dimmed, and she went on to play the "other woman" in various "Poverty Row" productions.
