Film legend Mickey Rooney dies at 93
He starred together with Judy Garland in 10 films and made more than 200 movies in all.
Earlier today, film great Mickey Rooney died – he was 93.
I snapped the photo to the left on Mr. Rooney on the red carpet of the Turner Classic Movie Film Festival two years ago – this year’s festival begins on Thursday.
Among his most memorable role was that of teen-about-town Andy Hardy in a 15 film series so popular that Rooney was the top box office draw from 1939 to 1941.
He began appearing in his parent’s vaudeville shows before he was two-years-old and went on to win an Emmy, an honorary Oscar and was nominated for a Tony Award for the Broadway smash Sugar Babies opposite Ann Miller.
His other film credits include: Boys Town, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Black Stallion.
