Happy Birthday Rose Marie

Anyone remember the Dick Van Dyke Show? I recently talked with Rose Marie, who played Sally Rogers, and Dick Van Dyke. Rosie celebrates her 90th birthday in August. What an amazing career beginning as 3 year old Baby Rose Marie - a child singer with an incredible voice. Check out YouTube for videos of her singing. She attracted the attention of presidents and notorious gangsters (not that the two are necessarily different) who all wanted her to perform for them. But mostly we remember her comedic talents from the Dick Van Dyke Show. There's a reason we call entertainers like Rose Marie legends! The story is in my new Tinseltown Talk column this month, which appears in more than 20 monthly magazines. Full story can be read here.

  3. That was a fun show and she always got a big share of the laughs. That name Rose Marie now has the song "Rose Marie" going through my head and will stick there all day. My neighbors will want to put out "for sale" signs as I'll be outside working and singing all day. Ha

  9. Loved the Dick Vandyke show. There was strong character portrayal in each of the cast members. That was true entertainment as opposed to the rubbish that's on now. Happy Birthday, Rose Marie. You made us all laugh.
