1In those days - it seems impossible now - nice girls didn't go to bed with people before they were married. I had been brought up by my British father. You just didn't do that. You did not sleep with them or live with them.
1Ex-sister-in-law of John C. Champion.
2Lina Basquette claimed to have chosen the name Marjorie for her half-sister Marge Champion after the popular song 'Margie' by Con Conrad and J. Russel Robinson.
3She will appear on Broadway this spring in a limited-run revival of Stephen Sondheim's "Follies" as-surprise-the wife of a husband-and-wife song-and-dance team, performing the song "Rain On the Roof". [January 2001]
4Mother, with Gower Champion, of film and television director Gregg Champion and son Blake Champion.
5Stepmother of actresses Katey Sagal, Joey Sagal, Jean Sagal and Liz Sagal.
6Daughter of dance teacher/choreographer Ernest Belcher.
7Younger step-sister of late silent screen actress, Lina Basquette.
8She was filmed for the reference of Disney animators (her then-husband Art Babbitt was an animator, and supervised much of the reference filming) as a model for the heroine in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), the Blue Fairy in Pinocchio (1940), and Hyacinth Hippo in the "Dance of the Hours" segment of Fantasia (1940) (along with Ruby Dandridge), which she also helped choreograph, in an elaborate parody of a Balanchine ballet danced by Vera Zorina in The Goldwyn Follies (1938). Marge even recalls doing some modeling for Mr. Stork in Dumbo (1941) .
