Storyline

Rose Marie, aged five or six, sings three numbers in the Vitaphone sound stage decorated as an elegant drawing room.

For those of you who only know Rose Marie as the eager comedy writer for the Dick Van Dyke Show in the Sixties, this film will be a revelation. Way back in the day of your parents and grandparents, little Baby Rose Marie had another career as a child performer. This Warner Brothers Vitagraph short is a tribute to that other career.

The young lady does three songs, Who Wouldn't Be Jealous Of You, Don't Be Like That and Heigh Ho Everybody Heigh Ho. The last one was Rudy Vallee's theme song with his Connecticut Yankees and Vallee at this time was the most popular male singer in America. I looked for an imitation of his nasal style in Rose Marie, but she did in her own style. Just as well.

Another treasure from the past preserved by Vitagraph.
