Rose Marie by Slim Whitman was a UK number 1 hit on Friday, July 29, 1955 spending 11 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was originally the title song of a 1924 musical, which took place in the Canadian Rockies and told the story of Rose-Marie La Flemme, a French-Canadian girl who loved miner Jim Kenyon. Slim Whitman was one of the first country artists to tour Great Britain and his version of the song spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You," spent 16 weeks at the top. This was the second song from the Rose Marie musical that Whitman turned into a million seller. In 1951 he hit the American Top 10 with "Indian Love Call."
