Rosemary's Baby Author:Ira Levin Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse were delighted at the chance to move into the Bramford, one of Manhattan's oldest and most celebrated apartment houses.

At first they were completely happy. Rosemary hung curtains and planned a nursery for the baby she hoped to have some day. Guy pursued his career as a stage and television actor. They met their neighbors, who were friendly and unintrusive.
