Rose Marie's place in show business history is anchored by her performance as smart aleck comedy writer Sally on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and a "Hollywood Squares" quipster."I loved to work for an audience and I loved to hold them in the palm of my hand – which I do," a still-confident Rose Marie said in the film.Throughout her career, she refused to be left behind as entertainment's focus expanded to include movies and television, with the driven Rose Marie adapting her talents as required. At a recent screening, Rose Marie held court from a wheelchair, frail but spirited in a follow-up discussion. She was joined by Van Dyke; the 1960s sitcom's co-star and its creator, Carl Reiner, and "Hollywood Squares" host Peter Marshall.The film honors Rose Marie's devotion to her big band musician husband, Bobby Guy, whose early death is why a black ribbon is routinely part of her trademark bouffant hairstyle.Georgiana Guy Rodrigues, the couple's daughter, suggests in the film that Rose Marie was more focused on her career than motherhood.
