In Memory of Mickey Rooney: 1920-2014


Mickey Rooney died on April 6, 2014 at the age of 93. Rooney’s career in Hollywood began early-on…he became a well-known child actor, with films like Manhattan Melodrama in 1934 and Reckless and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, both in 1935. But, he was most known from his work in the late 1930s and 1940s, especially for his Andy Hardy films with Judy Garland, with whom he also starred along in Babes in Arms, Girl Crazy, Babes on Broadway, Strike Up the Band, Thoroughbreds Don’t Cry and Words and Music. Rooney worked right up until the end, even having some projects in the works at the time of his death.
