More information

Moore, elder of two siblings, was born in the Brooklyn Heights section of Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Marjorie (née Hackett) and George Tyler Moore, a clerk. Her maternal grandparents were natives of England. Her family moved to Los Angeles, California when she was eight years old (some sources say 10). She attended Saint Rose of Lima Roman Catholic school in Brooklyn, St. Ambrose School in Los Angeles on Fairfax, and the Immaculate Heart High School on Los Feliz Boulevard in Hollywood, California.

At the age of 17, Moore aspired to be a dancer. She started her career as "Happy Hotpoint", a tiny elf dancing on Hotpoint appliances in TV commercials during the 1950s series Ozzie and Harriet. She filmed 39 TV spots in five days, ultimately earning about $6,000 from the first job of her career. Her time as "Happy Hotpoint" ended when it became difficult to conceal her pregnancy in the dancing elf costume.
