Knight was born Margaret Rose Valliquietto in Los Angeles in 1913. During the first years of her life, she was in very poor health. She suffered from tuberculosis when she was 4 years old and Doctors told her parents that there was a big chance that she would never live to maturity. Due to infantile paralysis, she couldn't walk till she was five years old.

When she was ten years old, she started to sing and dance in public. Aged 19, she appeared in the last Ziegfeld Follies show, Hot-Cha! (1932). She would be featured in four other Broadway shows, Take A Chance (1932), Jubilee (1935) (where she introduced the Cole Porter classic "Begin the Beguine"), The Would-Be Gentleman (1946) (her only non-musical) and Sweethearts (1947).
