Mini Bio (1)

William (Bill) Cagney (producer brother of star James Cagney) was almost a dead ringer for his, in front of the camera, more famous brother. When first wife Boots' younger sister Viola "Bodie" (Mallory) Avinger gave birth to identical twin boys Cleveland (Cleve) and Steven (Steve) Lewis on February 19, 1941 - Boots Mallory Cagney wanted twins like her middle sister and so she and Bill Cagney adopted fraternal twins Jill and William shortly after that.
