Baby Marie Osborne; Child Star Dead @ 99!

Posted in 20th century, Baby Marie Osborne, Bette Davis, Silent Film on November 18, 2010 by babylonbaroque

I stumbled upon this sad obituary yesterday, Helen Alice Myers known to legions of fans in the early 20th century as Baby Marie Osborne died on the 11th.

I of course was intrigued, the NYT article above does a much finer job then I am capable of, but Baby Marie Osborne was quite the celebrity, earning $1000.00 a week, she was a glamorous little girl.She was best known for role in  the 1916 film  Little Miss Sunshine, but I have had little luck unearthing any clips.

I frankly have had little luck unearthing very much at all. Loads on that OTHER Marie Osborne( the less said the better).

age 99


Perhaps as a happy substitute I will enclose that OTHER child star, one who aged with less grace, Baby Jane , with the terrifying Bette Davis.

She scared the crap out of this young homo, I have now adapted to her spookiness.


Thank you Miss Myers, I WILL unearth some clips!

With that, Good Night ,
