Farewell, Mickey Rooney!

news-mickey-rooney-02The world of cinema and musicals wakes up today mourning the death of beloved actor Mickey Rooney.

Born Ninian Joseph Yule Jr., this charismatic and charming legend had one of the most prolific careers in the business, received four Academy Awards nominations, won two honorary Oscars: the Juvenile Award, in 1939 and the Lifetime Achievement, in 1983; two Golden Globes in 1964 and 1982, and an Emmy, the same year.

The actor passed away accompanied by his family this Sunday. He was 93 years old.

 

The audience and I are friends. They allowed me to grow up with them. I’ve let them down several times. They’ve let me down several times. But we’re all family – M. Rooney
