This Day in Norwood History-January 24, 1941-Marion Rosamond Starting On Second Hollywood Film

Latest word from Marion Rosamond known to Norwood as Marion Flynn, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Flynn of Central street that in a week or so she will be starting in another new Hollywood production featuring Kate Smith.

Miss Rosamond went to Hollywood the Sunday after Christmas to begin work under a 20th Century Fox six months contract. Her first assignment was as a camera subject in “Road to Rio”, a musical in technicolor starring Don Ameche and Alice Faxe. After the appearance of the film’s first rushes, Darryl Zanuck congratulated Miss Rosamond on her appearance.

Miss Rosamond is both taking part in films and studying, spending part of her day at the studio and part in school A recent letter home reports that Hollywood is being very kind to the Norwood High school graduate. At Franchot Tone’s home she had met Burgess Meredith, Fannie Brice, and David O Selznick, and she reported a conversation with Henry Fonda.

Miss Rosamond’s climb toward Hollywood started in her High School days. She was in the cast of the senior play, and was selected to play in the Boston filmed movie, “It Happened in Boston.” At that time too, she was named Miss Massachusetts.

Going to New York, she became prominent as a model and took part in movie fashion reviews. Last May she was given the secretary’s role in “Louisiana Purchase” and left this Broadway show for Hollywood.
