Mickey Rooney 100 -- September 23, 2020

The wildly talented Mickey Rooney was born 100 years ago today, on 23-September-1920.  When he died in 2014, he was one of the last living people who had starred in a silent movie, in his case a series of Mickey McGuire short comedies.  He may also have been the last person alive who starred in a movie with Tom Mix, My Pal, the King.

He made many popular films with Judy Garland. 

I remember seeing  him on television when I was a kid and having trouble relating him to the young boy I saw in old movies. 

He was amazingly talented.  His career had a lot of ups and downs, but more ups.
