Baby Rose Marie the Child Wonder is a great find for those fans of hers of "The Dick Van Dyke Show"
30 November 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This is another of the Vitaphone musical shorts from the late 20s that's on The Jazz Singer DVD. This one stars a precocious child singer named Baby Rose Marie who, yes, later removed the "Baby" from her name when she grew up and played Sally Rogers on "The Dick Van Dyke Show". Here, she has bobbed dark hair which was fashionable at the time and a voice that just won't quit that made her such a sensation at the time. In fact, it's amazing she didn't suffer the pressure another contemporary of hers, Judy Garland, eventually did. Also unlike Ms. Garland, Ms. Marie is still alive to tell the tale. So on that note, Baby Rose Marie the Child Wonder is definitely worth watching.
