"Rose Marie" is a popular song from the musical or operetta of the same name. In the original Broadway production in 1924 it was performed by Dennis King and Arthur Deagon as the characters Jim Kenyon and Sergeant Malone. On three occasions the play has been made into a movie; Rose-Marie (1928 film), Rose Marie (1936 film) and Rose Marie (1954 film).
Produced by Lew Chudd, Whitman's recording of the song spent 11 weeks at #1 in the UK - setting a record which was not beaten until 1991, when Bryan Adams spent 16 weeks at the top of the chart with "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You".
