Rose Steinberg Wapner, a script supervisor for 20th Century Fox for more than 50 years, died Feb. 1 after a fall that resulted in a cerebral hemorrhage. She was 85.
She began her career as an extra with her brother and sister in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1923 “The Ten Commandments.” She later worked as a film cutter, lab technician and dialogue coach, eventually finding her niche as a script supervisor at 20th Century Fox.
Some of the films she was associated with are “Intermezzo,””Sun Valley Serenade,””How to Marry a Millionaire,””Niagara,””The Desert Fox,”‘The Razor’s Edge” and “Let’s Make Love.”
In 1983 she was honored with a Life Time Achievement Award by the Society of Operating Cameramen.
Her late husband was Patty Wapner (uncle of “People’s Court” Judge Joseph A. Wapner), who died in 1976.
She is survived by several great-nieces and great-nephews.
Services were held Feb. 2 at Beth Olam Cemetery in Hollywood.
