Storyline

Rose Marie, aged five or six, sings three numbers in the Vitaphone sound stage decorated as an elegant drawing room. "Heigh Ho, Everybody, Heigh Ho," "Who Wouldn't Be Jealous of You," and "Don't Be Like That." She sings the first in a polka-dot sailor suit and the other two numbers in a frilly white dress. She's animated throughout, acting as well as singing. She scats in both "Heigh Ho" and "Don't Be Like That." At the end, she curtsies twice. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quite precocious!
23 January 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

An early Vitaphone film, this Warner Brothers short apparently was one created using a very complicated system through which an accompanying record was synchronized with a movie camera. There were several serious setbacks for such a system (such as if a film skipped--it became out of sync for the rest of the film plus the records quickly wore out--and 20 showings was the normal life-span of the records) and even though it produced excellent sound, it was eventually replaced. The last of the Vitaphone films were made in 1930, then the studio switched to the standard sound-on-film system.

Rose Marie (of "Dick Van Dyke Show" fame) is given the spotlight in this short. Watching her, it's hard to imagine that this poised professional was only 6 years-old at the time! Her parents must have kept her in a cage, beaten her and fed her mind-altering drugs to make her perform like this!! I am kidding of course, but she was a truly amazing child singer--as amazing as Shirley Temple but perhaps too early to catch on with the same intensity with the American public. With only a couple childhood screen credits to her name, she made a bigger splash on stage as well as her memorable TV roles as an adult.

Now I would NOT want a steady diet of Baby Rose Marie's singing, she was wonderful in this short. Great singing and charming from start to finish--and better than just about all the adult acts I've seen in the Vitaphone shorts! Watch this one!
