#Fact
1 It was Rose Marie who suggested Morey Amsterdam, a long-time friend of hers, be considered to play the third writer on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961). The producers of the show had originally planned to hire a younger actor who would play a new writer just starting out in show business, but decided that a show biz veteran like Amsterdam playing an older writer at the end of his career would offer even better comedic possibilities.
2 Daughter, Georgiana Marie Guy (born May 18, 1947), with Bobby Guy.
3 According to the liner notes for the CD of the "Gypsy" soundtrack, Rose Marie was on the "short list" of possible dubbers for Rosalind Russell. (Lisa Kirk ultimately was chosen.).
4 Is into Italian cooking and knitting (on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961), she occasionally could be seen knitting in the office).
5 Wanted to leave The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) after her husband died in 1964, but was talked out of it by director John Rich, and continued until the end of the show's run in 1966.
6 Born on the day that the Broadway musical "Rose-Marie" opened.
7 On stage from age 3 as "Baby Rose Marie, she dropped the "Baby" at the age of 15.
8 Made history as one of the headliners who opened the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, the first of the modern hotel/casinos.
9 Her husband, musician Bobby Guy, was at one time lead trumpeter for the NBC orchestra on "The Tonight Show".
10 Toured for over eight years in the musical revue "4 Girls 4" with Rosemary Clooney, Helen O'Connell, and Margaret Whiting. As of the death of Margaret Whiting in 2011, Rose Marie is the last remaining of the four.
11 Received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on October 3, 2001. It was the 2184th star issued.
12 The hair bow has some personal significance on which Rose Marie has so far refused to elaborate.
13 She is of Italian and Polish extraction.
14 According to Sylvia Miles, Rose Marie got the job for which she is best known (Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961)) after Miles pulled out after the pilot.
15 She had two separate acting careers - one as "Baby Rose Marie" in the 1920s, and the other, which began in the 1940s.

Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1 There are no people in show business that I don't know. It's amazing. What I do now is commentary on people that are all dead. Nobody remembers! Nobody remembers Sophie Tucker! Nobody remembers . . . Jerry Lester and things like that. People call me, they say, "We're doing a book. Can you do some commentary?" I'm in every book that's coming out! The Three Stooges. There's a whole chapter of me in this new Three Stooges book.
2 [on Milton Berle] Milton was a genius and Milton could not explain what he wanted or how he wanted it. He'd get all mixed-up. For instance, he was doing his television show and he said to the conductor Victor Young, "I want a G chord here." My husband told me this. My husband was a musician in the band. Victor Young said, "Okay, gentlemen. Give me a G chord." They went, "Tah-dah!" Milton flew over to Victor and practically killed him. "I said a G chord you dumb son of a bitch!" Called him all kinds of names. My husband, who also knew Milton very well, said to Victor Young, "He wants a C chord." So Victor Young said, "All right, gentlemen. Give me a C chord." They went, "Tah-dah!" Milton says, "That's a goddamn G chord! Don't you know what you're doing? That's what I wanted."
3 [on Jimmy Durante] Oh! That man was the love of my life! Love of my life! I'm not an impersonator, I never was, but in my act I used to do a little bit of a Durante in a song. It got [more and more popular]. His wife said I did the best Durante of all. In fact, I ended up having to do a whole song as Durante in my act. I used to go to Jimmy and say, "How do I do this?" He taught me how to do him with the proper inflections and how to move my hands. He had a certain way of talking. I graveled my voice a little more and it got to the point where I had to do full numbers about Jimmy Durante--"I'm in Love with Jimmy Durante" and "I Wish I Could Sing Like Jimmy Durante". It was a whole series of numbers that I did in my act. I had to go to Jimmy all the time. He even taught me how to play the piano like him.
4 [on working with Edgar Bergen in vaudeville] He was very nice. We became very good friends. I never had any trouble with anyone when I was doing vaudeville. All of them, I guess because I was a kid, they all taught me what they did. I learned how to juggle. I learned how to walk on a big ball. I learned how to do trapeze. I was the kid. They used to say, "Come on, let's keep her busy." And they taught me everything. It was a very educational thing for me.
5 [on meeting Candice Bergen] When I did Candice Bergen's show, Murphy Brown (1988), I told her, "I worked with your father [Edgar Bergen] in vaudeville when he was doing a doctor sketch." She said, "Well, you couldn't have played the nurse--you were too young!" I said, "No, I was headlining. He was the opening act." She didn't care for that too much.
6 [on Al Jolson] He was mean. He was a lousy man. Very mean and very . . . oh, he was terrible. In fact, nobody ever liked him.
7 [about meeting Al Jolson in 1927, when she was four years old] They played a couple of shorts at that time that were silent and mine was the only one with sound. It played with The Jazz Singer (1927) at The Wintergarden in New York. It was a phenomenal thing. I went up to Jolson and said, "You were wonderful, Mr. Jolson!" He said, "Get away, you little brat!" He didn't like kids.
8 [asked about The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) ending its run after only five years] It was a big mistake. We could have gone on another two years--in color!
9 [at age 80, when asked if she planned to retire] I've been in show business my whole life. Why start something new now?
