NANCY DAVIS, (born in 1921) a 27-year-old actress at MGM, began receiving Communist Party propaganda in 1950 during the Red scare in Hollywood. She consulted with director Mervyn LeRoy, who spoke with Screen Actors Guild President RONALD REAGAN about the problem. Reagan, 39-years-old and recently divorced, met with Davis at dinner and told her that there were five actresses named Nancy Davis and that the union would stand behind her if she were accused of being a Communist. That was their first date. On March 4, 1952, they were married in the Little Brown Church in North Hollywood, California. Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) had two careers: actor and politician. His first movie was Love is on the Air (1937) and his 53rd and last film was The Killers (1964). In 1965, he wrote his autobiography, Where's the Rest of Me?, a line from his role as Drake McHugh in King's Row (1942). Reagan left his job hosting television's Death Valley Days during the 1965-1966 season, when he entered politics. Elected Governor of California in 1966, he was reelected in 1970. Reagan began his campaign for the presidency and narrowly lost the 1976 Republican nomination to Gerald Ford. He was elected President in 1980 and was reelected in 1984. After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. On February 6, 2001, Reagan became just the third U.S. President to reach the age of 90 and the nation's longest living President until Gerald Ford (d. 2006) lived 45 days longer. Fine condition.
