Baby Rose Marie the Child Wonder (1929)

*** (out of 4)

Baby Rose Marie isn't a name that many are going to know today but back in the day she was certainly one of the most loved people in the business. This 9-minute short has her singing three songs and even though the technical quality of the film isn't very high you can at least see why so many people loved her. She sings Who Wouldn't Be Jealous Of You, Don't Be Like That and Heigh Ho Everybody Heigh Ho. All three songs are sung incredibly well and she really has a terrific delivery that makes you want to hear more from her. She does a little dancing too but most of the shots are close or medium shots so you really can't see too much. The technical side of things aren't that impressive as it seems like the footage was shot in just one take and there's really nothing overly special in terms of cinematography or direction. With that said, the main reason to check this out is for Marie and she certainly comes off incredibly charming.
