She was practically raised at MGM studios while her parents worked long hours there and she made her film debut at fourteen months of age in the movie In the Good Old Summertime (1949). Her parents divorced in 1951 and, in 1952, her mother married Sidney Luft, with sister Lorna Luft and brother Joey Luft subsequently being born. Her father, Vincente Minnelli, later married Georgette Magnani, mother of her step-sister Christiana Nina Minnelli.At sixteen, Liza was on her own in New York City, struggling to begin her career in show business. Her first recognition came for the play "Best Foot Forward" which ran for seven months in 1963. A year later, Judy invited Liza to appear with her for a show at the London Paladium. This show sold out immediately and a second night was added to it. Liza's performance in London was a huge turning point in both her career and her relationship with her mother. The audience absolutely loved Liza and Judy realized that Liza was now an adult with her own career. It was at the Paladium that Liza met her first husband, Peter Allen, a friend of Judy's.Liza won a Tony award at age nineteen and was nominated for her first Academy Award at age twenty-three for the role of Pookie Adams in The Sterile Cuckoo (1969). Other dramatic roles followed and, in 1972, she won an Oscar for her performance as Sally Bowles in the movie Cabaret (1972). The seventies were a busy time for Liza. She worked steadily in film, stage and music. She and good friend Halston were regulars at Studio 54, the trendiest disco club in the world. Marriages to filmmaker Jack Haley Jr. and Mark Gero, a sculptor who earned his living in the theater followed. Each marriage ended in divorce.Over the past years, her career has leaned more towards stage performances and she has a long list of musical albums which she continues to add to. She teamed with Frank Sinatra in his "Duets" CD and Sammy Davis Jr. joined them for a series of concerts and TV shows which were extremely well-received.She has had to deal with tabloid stories of drug abuse and ill-health and has had a number of high profile stays at drug-rehabilitation clinics. Her hectic schedule may have slowed down in recent years, but she still has a large following of immensely loyal fans who continue to cheer her on.MORE INFO ON ROBERT DE NIRO: Robert De Niro, who is thought of as one of the greatest actors of his time, was born in New York City in 1943 to two artists. He was trained at the Stella Adler Conservatory and the American Workshop. He first gained fame for his role in Bang the Drum Slowly (1973), but he gained his reputation as a volatile actor in Mean Streets (1973), which was his first film with director Martin Scorsese. In 1974 De Niro received an Academy Award for best supporting actor for his role in The Godfather: Part II (1974) and received Academy Award nomations for best actor in Taxi Driver (1976), The Deer Hunter (1978), and Cape Fear (1991). He won the best actor award in 1980 for Raging Bull (1980). De Niro currently heads his own production company, Tribeca Film Center, and made his directorial debut in 1993 with A Bronx Tale (1993).MORE INFO ON HIRSCHFELD: Famous caricaturist of Broadway and movie stars since the 1920s.On what would have been his 100th birthday - June 21, 2003 - the Martin Beck Theatre on Broadway was renamed the Al Hirschfeld Theater.Hirschfeld called French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec a major influence on his work.His father, Isaac, was a "house husband," staying home and caring for the children while Hirschfeld's mother, Rebecca, went out and supported the family.His first theatrical caricature (of Sacha Guitry) was published by the New York Herald Tribune in 1926.His widow Louise and her late husband, Leo Kerz, were good friends of Hirschfeld and his late wife, Dolly.CBS hired Hirschfeld to draw caricatures of the casts of its entire 1963 Fall schedule. His sketch of Lucille Ball (from "Lucy Show, The" (1962)) was later reproduced by the Museum of Broadcasting for its First Lady of Comedy tribute poster in 1984.Since his caricature of Harry Lauder appeared in the 29 January 1928 New York Times, Hirschfeld's work for the paper (an estimated 7,000 pieces) was done on a freelance basis; in 1990, the Times offered him a contract.The youngest of three brothers.To be caricatured by Hirschfeld was considered a milestone for an artist, a sign that he or she had made an indelible mark in their chosen field.Daughter 'Nina Hirschfeld' was born on 20 October 1945. Finding the "Ninas" in his caricatures became an American ritual. The U.S. Department of Defense used his drawings in an exercise, blowing them up on a giant screen and giving 100 pilots 20 seconds to find the hidden "Ninas."In 1991, the United States Postal Service released five stamps it commissioned from Hirschfeld: Laurel & Hardy, Jack Benny, Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy, Abbott & Costello, and Fanny Brice. A new series was issued in 1994: Rudolf Valentino, Clara Bow, Charles Chaplin, John Gilbert, Lon Chaney, the Keystone Cops, Theda Bara, Zasu Pitts, Harold Lloyd, and Buster Keaton. For the first and only time, the USPS allowed the artist's name and hidden writing in both issues ("NINA," of course).Co-edited a satirical journal, Americana, with Alexander King in the early 1930s.Because he was considered a living civic institution, Hirschfeld was officially designated a landmark in 1996 by the New York Landmarks Conservancy.Drew 37 covers for TV Guide.In 1975, he received a Special Tony Award "for 50 years of theatrical cartoons."He was awarded the U.S. National Medal of Arts in 2002 from the National Endowment for the Arts.Was heavily critical of early Disney animation for its pervasive realism. Years later, however, Disney would cite his drawings as inspiration in films like "Aladdin" and "Fantasia 2000."Winning buyder agrees in advance to pay an additional Mail postage (Foreign orders will require additional postage) and to remit full payment within 10 days after notification from the seller.
