Rose Marie is best known for her role as wisecracking Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966), but she also starred in several other series, including My Sister Eileen (1960-1961) and The Doris Day Show (1969-1971) and the popular game show, Hollywood Squares. She made her film debut in 1933's International House and then appeared in 1954's Top Banana, reprising her role from the 1953 Broadway musical that co-starred Phil Silvers. Her other credits include Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round (1966), Cheaper to Keep Her (1980) and Ghettoblaster (1989), and made numerous TV guest appearances.
