Elaine Devry


Born - 10 January 1930, Compton, California
Died - 20 October 2023

Tall, beautiful, chestnut-haired actress with wolf-whistle figure who never got the roles her talent deserved and is now best remembered as one of the many wives of diminutive firecracker star Mickey Rooney (she was six inches taller). Still, she continued to decorate lightweight film fare into her forties. Born Elaine Mahnken, her films included A Slight Case of Larceny (1953), The Atomic Kid (1954), China Doll (1958), The Last Time I Saw Archie (1961), Man-Trap (1961), Diary of a Madman (1963), A Guide for the Married Man (1967), With Six You Get Eggroll (1968), Once You Kiss a Stranger... (1969), The Cheyenne Social Club (1970), Bless the Beasts and Children (1971), The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973), Herbie Rides Again (1974) and, much later, Heart to (1999), her last. Rooney was the second of her three husbands.
