RIP Rose Marie (Comedian)

We also lose a few right at the end of the year.. hopefully this will be the only one.

Rose Marie, best known for her role as Sally Rogers on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” died Thursday in Van Nuys, Calif. She was 94.

She was Emmy nominated three times for her work on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” in which she played part of the writing team, led by Van Dyke’s Rob Petrie, for the fictional “Alan Brady Show.” The actress began a five-season stint as Sally Rogers in 1960, but decades earlier, she had been a child singing star under the name Baby Rose Marie. She began her career at 3, starring in her own show on NBC radio by the age of 5, cutting records and appearing in vaudeville, in shorts including 1929’s “Baby Rose Marie the Child Wonder” and in Paramount’s 1933 feature “International House” with W.C. Fields.

International House is worth seeing. In addition to Fields and Baby Rosemarie, it features various stars of the time, including Burns and Allen, and Cab Calloway and his band doing “Reefer Man”, as well as Bell Lugosi and others. Made before the Hayes Act sucked the fun out of Hollywood. The premise is that a lot of people are gathering in Woo Hoo, China to see and bid on an amazing device called a “radio scope” that can broadcast events (basically TV). While trying to tune in to a 6-day bicycle race, they keep finding Cab Calloway, etc.

Old enough to have actually seen her during a taping of a Dick Van Dyke Show. RIP.

The L.A. Times just recently published a couple of articles about her, including one about a recently released documentary with Marie as its subject:

I was one of her Twitter followers. She had one of the best ones. I'll miss her.

I just looked her up on Wikipedia a few days ago to see if she was still alive, after seeing her as a guest star on an episode of Mr. Belvedere.

She was a hoot. From Baby Rose Marie in Vaudeville, to a major role on the Dick van Dyke Show, to guest roles and voiceovers - from 1920's to 2010's - a born entertainer, and always enjoyable.

I salute her, and celebrate the life she had.

R.I.P.

I grew up watching her on my favorite at the time, The Dick Van Dyke show. I didn't realize she had such a rich career in show business. I'll have to look for that recently released documentary.

94 is a pretty good run, we should all be so lucky to make it that far.

A factoid (what I was told). She was the last living singer to have had hits dating before World War II.
