Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Rosemary Clooney

I’m sure most of you know who actor George Clooney is, but do you know who his aunt is?  Rosemary Clooney was a famous singer and actress. She had several hits. Her career slowed when she underwent depression and drug addiction. Rosemary published an autobiography detailing her fight with addiction to prescription drugs for depression and how she lost and later regained a fortune. She experienced a revival in 1977 when Bing Crosby asked her to appear with him in a show celebrating his 50th anniversary in show business. She starred alongside Crosby in the hit movie “White Christmas.” She also appeared in several TV variety shows. In 1995 she guest starred in the NBC medical drama “ER” with her nephew George Clooney, for which she received a primetime Emmy award nomination. Her lung cancer was caused by many years of heavy smoking.
