The title song, "Rosie", was composer 'Harry Warren''s final song contribution to a produced movie. The melody is actually a rework of a song, "Me And My Baby," with original lyrics by Sammy Cahn, that was written for, but not used in, the Jerry Lewis film Rock-a-Bye Baby (1958). See more »
Rosalind Russell executes a power-house performance as Rosie Lord, a very wealthy woman with greedy heirs. With an Auntie Mame-type character, this actress can never go wrong. Her very-real terror at being in an insane assylum is a wonderful piece of acting. Everyone should watch this.
