A famous child star at age 4, Marie's made a mark on nearly every aspect of the entertainment industry, including Vaudeville, radio, film, Broadway, and television, whose fans best know her as plucky comedy writer Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show.
But just as fascinating as the 92-year-old performer's impressive résumé is her slate of famous friends – she had a four decades-long friendship with Frank Sinatra and she is the last person alive who knew and was close to notorious mobster Al Capone.

Dick Van Dyke is said to be okay after his Jaguar went up in smoke on Monday afternoon.

Photos obtained by TMZ show Van Dyke's car burnt to a crisp.

Dick Van Dyke's mystery illness has been solved, hopefully.
"It seems that my titanium dental implants are the cause of my head pounding," the 87-year-old favorite of stage, screen and television Tweeted Thursday. "Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks for all your replies."
In late April, Van Dyke announced he was suffering "fatigue and lack of sleep resulting from symptoms of a yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder."

The multi-talented TV and movie veteran Dick Van Dyke has canceled public appearances planned for next week, his rep tells Entertainment Tonight.
Citing "fatigue and lack of sleep resulting from symptoms of a yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder," Van Dyke, 87, will remain in his home in Malibu, with his wife Arlene, and not fly east for a scheduled ceremony at Manhattan's 92nd Street Y, according to spokesman Bob Palmer.
Seeking advice from anyone with a suggestion, Van Dyke posted on his Twitter account this week: "My head bangs every time I lay down. I've had every test come back that I'm perfectly healthy. Anybody got any ideas?"
He also said, "It has been going on for 7 years. I've had every test you can think of, including an MRI and spinal tap."

For much of his career, Dick Van Dyke was known for his youthful energy. So it's little wonder that when the Mary Poppins actor turned 87 last December, he and wife Arlene celebrated with a trip to Disneyland.
"What a kick!" says Van Dyke, recounting palling around with Mickey Mouse and receiving a serenade from the L.A. Philharmonic. "We were treated like royalty."
There's more adulation in store for him Jan. 27, when the Dick Van Dyke Show and Diagnosis Murder star will receive the Life Achievement Award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards (airing on TNT and TBS). "This was a surprise," he confesses. "People think of me as a song and dance entertainer. To be accepted by my peers as an actor is really a thrill."
