Rose Marie pre-DVD

I thought I was sleepy tonight, but I can't stop watching the third disc of the Turner Classic Movies "Jazz Singer" box I picked up from the MetroCenter B. Dalton's. It is a collection of Vitaphone shorts of vaudevillians from the mid-1920s through the mid-1930s, including this awesome one of Baby Rose Marie that some kind soul put on YouTube.

Something seemed familiar about this tyke with a remarkable set of pipes. Could it be?

A little Googling and ,,, yes! It is that Rose Marie—not only still with us, but about to celebrate her 85th birthday next Friday. Amazing!
