Not My Job: Filmmaker Errol Morris Gets Quizzed On Mickey Rooney

Director Errol Morris arrives for the screening of The Unknown Known at the 70th Venice Film Festival in September.

In 2003, Errol Morris, who has been making documentaries for 30 years, won an Oscar for The Fog of War about former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. His new film, The Unknown Known, is about former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Once he does a film with former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, he can turn in his loyalty card for a free secretary.

We've invited Morris to play a game called "Let's put on a show!" Three questions about Mickey Rooney, who died Sunday at 93.
