THE STRIP MOVIE CAST: MICKEY ROONEY and MONICA LEWIS Image of Rooney playing the piano but very distracted by Lewis Photograph signed: "Mickey Rooney", "Monica/Lewis". B/w, 8x10. Movie still from The Strip (1951). MICKEY ROONEY (1920-2014) was the son of vaudevillians who put him into their act when he was 15 months old. He debuted onscreen in the silent short Not to Be Trusted in 1926 at the age of six. In 1998, 72 years later, Rooney appeared in Babe: Pig in the City and a later film, The Fighting Temptations, was released in 2003. During the course of his career, Rooney received four Academy Award nominations: two for Best Actor (Babes in Arms, 1939; The Human Comedy, 1943) and two for Best Supporting Actor (The Bold and the Brave, 1956; The Black Stallion, 1979). He was awarded special Oscars in 1938 "for significant contribution in bringing to the screen the spirit and personification of youth, and as a juvenile player setting a high standard of ability and achievement" and in 1982 "in recognition of his 60 years of versatility in a variety of memorable film performances". Rooney, who also won a Golden Globe Best Actor award for his performance in the TV movie, Bill, starred in 16 films as Andy Hardy, the wise-cracking son of a small-town judge, from 1937 to 1958. He made his debut on Broadway in 1979, receiving a nomination for a Tony Award for Best Actor for the musical Sugar Babies. MONICA LEWIS (1922-2015) was an American jazz singer and film actress who was the youngest of three children. Her father, Leon, was a pianist and composer and her mother, Jessica, was a singer with the Chicago Opera Company. She played leading roles in films of the 1950s, including Excuse My Dust (1951), Affair with a Stranger (1953) and The D. I. (1957) and supporting roles thereafter, including Airport '77 and '79. She has had recurring roles in TV series, including Shotgun Slade (1959) and The Virginian (1965-1966). Also a singer, she has released several recordings in the traditional pop and jazz genres. Lewis appeared on the very first Ed Sullivan show (1948), and was the voice of Miss Chiquita Banana for 14 years. In her 2011 memoir “Hollywood Through My Eyes”, Lewis revealed that actor and future U.S. President Ronald Reagan had proposed to her but that she declined that marriage proposal. She died on June 12, 2015 at her home in Weoodland Hills, California of natural causes. Fine condition.
