Screen legend Mickey Rooney has died at age 93. Born in Brooklyn in 1920, Rooney grew up in show business. He was a child star in the silent era and transitioned successfully into talkies and musicals, becoming a huge star in the '30s and '40s with his "Andy Hardy" films, many of which co-starred Judy Garland. In the 1950s, he had his own television show while continuing to make movies, and kept on rolling through his autumn years -- he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in 1979's The Black Stallion -- and had projects lined up for this year. He was one of the greats.

Watch a CNN tribute, a few numbers from his Andy Hardy pictures and other videos, below. Rest in peace, Mickey.

I would have bet Mickey Rourke would have died before Mickey Rooney.

I'd like to start the rumor that Mickey Rooney wrote all the lyrics on the Strokes 2nd album. He choose not to be credited for obvious reasons.

1:08 -why? maybe b/c his kids had a rock band in the 60's-that's all I can think of-they were called The Rooney Brothers for some reason.
