Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mickey Rooney made his directorial debut with My True Story. Per its title, the film is based on an article which first appeared in the pages of True Story magazine. Jewel thief Ann Martin (Helen Walker) is paroled thanks to some string-pulling by criminal boss George Trent (Wilton Graff). Ann soon learns that she is expected to participate in a major gem heist. With the help of policeman Bill Phillips (Willard Parker) -- who also happens to be a former member of U.S. military intelligence -- Ann hopes to turn the tables on the smooth-but-deadly Trent. Featured in the cast as "Mark Foster" is Aldo DaRe, who would matriculate to stardom under the nom de film of Aldo Ray.
