Rose Marie, 1923-2017

Rose Marie, the comic actress who started her career as a child singer in the late 1920s and is probably best remembered for playing Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show, has died at the age of 94.

If you do a Youtube search for "Baby Rose Marie", you'll get a goodly number of hits on the various shorts she did at that young age. I don't think that she made too many films as a serious actress, that is, not the singing child. It's been a long time since I've seen Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round.

Rose Marie was also a frequent guest on The Hollywood Squares, and the subject of the recently released documentary Wait for Your Laugh, about her long career.
