Rosemary, originally from Mayesville, Kentucky and aunt to dreamy George Clooney, got her start singing with her sister in a big band back in the 40's. She recorded many albums over the years and starred in several movies, but my favorite will always be this performance in White Christmas.
This is my favorite song of Rosie's. I think she just SMOKES it! Once again, like in the Get Happy Judy Garland number, the male dancer choreography is a bit bizarre, but you've got to give them credit for trying something different!! Rosemary talked in the DVD commentary about the gloves they made her wear in this number. She said they were rhinestone and caught on EVERYTHING! She had to be very careful not to GRAB anything during the scenes, or she'd be stuck!
So, here she is! The actual number starts at 1:00 in, so skip to that if you want to avoid the opening scene. Hope you enjoy it, and that you have a very Rosie weekend!
