Legendary Actor Mickey Rooney Dead at 93


Mickey Rooney, one of MGM’s biggest box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, has died. He was 93.

Rooney had been ill for quite some time. His death was attributed to natural causes.

Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer– starring in comedies and dramatic films, singing and dancing on screen.

He was one of the most famous child actors in entertainment history. He played the role of Andy Hardy in “The Hardy Boys” in 20 films.

Rooney teamed with Judy Garland for “Babes in Arms” in 1939.

He was the first teenager ever to be nominated for an Oscar for his leading role in “Strike Up the Band” in 1940.

Rooney and Elizabeth Taylor starred in one of the biggest movies of the 40s — “National Velvet” — which launched Taylor’s career.

Rooney also starred with Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

Rooney appeared most recently in “The Muppets” in 2011 with Amy Adams and Jason Segal and “Night at the Museum” in 2006 with Ben Stiller.

The 5’2″ Rooney was married 8 times. One of his wives was Ava Gardner.
