Mickey Rooney, RIP


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.
