Born Rose Marie Mazetta on August 15 1923 – the day the Broadway musical Rose-Marie opened – Rose Marie was perhaps best known for portraying the wise-cracking Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show.

She began her career as a child star aged 3 in vaudeville during the 1920s and 30s, after winning an amateur contest which took her to Atlantic City and saw her become a popular radio personality, also starring in some of the earliest talking films such as the 1929 shot, Baby Rose Marie The Child Wonder which was screened in cinemas before feature films.
