Synopsis

Mickey Rooney, fresh off renewed stardom on Broadway in "Sugar Babies", turned in a remarkable Emmy Award-winning performance as Bill Sackter, an indomitable real-life spirit who is forced to tackle life outside of the mental institution where he was confined for 44 years, with the help of his new-found friend and guardian, aspiring filmmaker Barry Morrow. Corey Blechman, who wrote the script based on Morrow's story of Sackter, also won an Emmy Award, and a nomination went to "Bill" itself as Outstanding Drama Special. Two years later, Rooney reprised his role in a sequel called "Bill: On His Own". It also won the l98l George Foster Peabody Award for distinguished programming.
