Living legend Rose Marie’s storied show biz life is chronicled in this excellent documentary following her career from childhood stardom to the Dick Van Dyke Show to Hollywood Squares.
Receiving its world premiere at the Mill Valley Film Festival, this charming portrait of Rose Marie pays tribute to a living legend and her 90-year active career.
Born in 1923, she became a singing radio star at four, and she went on to work in every area of show business from stage to screen. She called Al Capone “Uncle Al,” opened the Flamingo for Bugsy Siegel and she befriended many of the show business greats.
Besides her incredible recollections, other on-camera witnesses include Dick Van Dyke and Carl Reiner, with whom she made The Dick Van Dyke Show (playing a woman TV writer in 1961), as well as Peter Marshall from Hollywood Squares.
