Bob Hope Special: Bob Hope's Salute to NASA -- 25 Years of Reaching For the Stars 1983 - 1984 (TV Show)
Rocketing to fame at an early age alongside her brother, the only thing more remarkable than Marie Osmond's eternal optimism was her longevity as an entertainer and cunning as a businesswoman. Introduced to America at the age of three alongside her siblings, The Osmond Brothers, Osmond had her first hit single, "Paper Roses," by the age of 14. Soon after, she began a lifelong professional collaboration with her brother Donny on the chart-topping song "I'm Leaving it All Up to You" in 1974. Two years later, they became bona fide television stars on the variety show "Donny & Marie"(ABC, 1976-79). A run at an acting career yielded TV movies like "I Married Wyatt Earp" (NBC, 1983), while stage work in such Broadway musicals as "The Sound of Music" garnered Osmond far more recognition. Outside of performing, Osmond showed her entrepreneurial spirit with a massively successful line of porcelain dolls and crafting designs sold through QVC and a run at the mirror ball trophy on the 2007 season of "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ) which endeared her to millions of fans, old and new. More popular than she had been in years, she reteamed with Donny for a long-running stage production at the Las Vegas Flamingo in 2008 and later realized her dream of hosting a daytime talk show of her own with "Marie" (Hallmark, 2012-13). Despite her squeaky clean image, over the years of highs and lows Osmond ultimately revealed herself to be a survivor.
