EXPIRED: 11/11/10 – Baby Marie, 99, was a star.

At 5, she made $300/week when most Depression-era Americans earned less than $1,000 a year.

Girls wished for a Baby Marie doll for Xmas. She asked for, and got, mansions.

Why not? She made 26 movies in 6 years, including Little Mary Sunshine!

But she was washed up at age 10.

In the 30’s she did stand-in work for Betty Hutton and for Ginger Rogers in Change of Heart. She also appeared in the Gay Divorcée.

Later she learned how to make costumes and found a job doing that behind the scenes for Guys and Dolls, Spartacus, The Way We Were, Mame,  The Godfather, Part II, and many others.
