Rosemary Hoyt (Tender is the Night) Rosemary Hoyt is a main character in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final completed novel, 1934’s Tender is the Night. Rosemary is a young and beautiful Hollywood starlet on a holiday with her mother on the French Riviera. She immediately, with Mom’s encouragement, falls in love with the novel’s protagonist, Dick Diver. Eventually Dick’s resistance wears down and he returns the favor, married though he is. And his marriage comes with complications – he is a psychiatrist married to a former patient, the emotionally fragile Nicole. The young and rather naïve Rosemary is drawn into the glamorous and sophisticated circle in which the Divers move, and is caught up in the misdeeds that seem to occur around them. Rosemary is said to be modeled upon the silent film actress, Lois Moran, with whom Fitzgerald conducted an affair. Ms. Moran retired quietly from the high life in 1934; perhaps Rosemary Hoyt did, too.
Rosemary Pilkington (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) Rosemary Pilkington is the girlfriend of the hero of the 1961 Broadway musical, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, based upon a 1952 book by Shepherd Mead. Rosemary is a pretty young secretary who sees promise in J. Pierpont Finch, the young window-washer making his way to the top with the aid of a how-to book. She is nothing if not loyal, and overlooks the wily “Ponty’s” schemes with the benign blindness of love. That warm-hearted faithfulness pays off when, in the style of fifty years ago, Rosemary gets her man at the end. She probably also quit the secretarial pool, so we hope the marriage lasted!
Rosemary Woodhouse (Rosemary's Baby) Rosemary Woodhouse is the title character in the blockbuster Roman Polanski 1968 movie, Rosemary’s Baby, based on the equally popular 1966 novel by Ira Levin. Rosemary is a young, happily married, happily expectant mother-to-be who suddenly finds herself in a nightmare. As she and her aspiring actor husband, Guy, settle into their Gothic New York apartment, they become friends with a much older couple, the Castavets. Mysterious things begin to happen, as one of Rosemary’s dearest friends falls into a coma, a neighbor commits suicide, and Guy’s career begins to take off. All the while, Rosemary’s pregnancy is advancing with fearsome side-effects and complications. As portrayed in the movie by Mia Farrow, Rosemary is a rightfully frightened person whose life, as well as that of her unborn child’s, seems to hang in a terrifying and unthinkable balance.
