Former actress Irene Manning once worked with Humphrey Bogart and Jimmy Cagney and was friends with Lauren Bacall and Ida Lupino, but she's fallen on hard times now. Her last movie was a "A Yank in Tokyo" with Cagney in 1946 and after that she became a nurse. Now in her 70s, Manning lives with five dogs, 13 birds and a cat in a house in Providence, R.I., that is up for sale because she can no longer afford it. "Where will I go? Who knows? Wherever I can find a place," she said. Manning wishes she could have stayed in show business longer. "I would like a reunion with some of the gang I performed with," she said, "but they'd have to come here. It's too expensive for me to go to Hollywood."
