It's a fun little watch. 60s as all *** but that's why I love it. Mickey Rooney plays an Asian stereotype for some reason
Watching family guy: Mickey Rooney: I like to yell at mice with my shirt off! Dad: THATS WHAT I DO IN THE SHED!

DUDE Mickey Rooney came into work today.
Mickey Rooney was among those who stopped by to bid farewell to Jay Leno yesterday:
Rat Pack History.The original Rat Pack was originally called, the "Summit of the Clan". It wasn't referred as the "Rat Pack" until after Humphrey Bogarts death in 1957. Humphrey Bogart was the original leader with his wife, Lauren Bacall, being the "Den Mother". The original members would meet on regular basis at Bogart and Bacall's home, also known as the Holmby Hills Rat Pack. The original members.Frank Sinatra (Pack Master), Judy Garland (First Vice-President), Lauren Bacall (Den Mother), Sid Luft (Cage Master), Humphrey Bogart (Rat in Charge of Public Relations), Swifty Lazar (Recoring Secretary and Treasurer), Nathaniel Benchley (Historian), David Niven, Rex Harrison, and Jimmy Van Heusen. Others that attended on regular basis were Errol Flynn, Nat King Cole, Mickey Rooney, and Cesar Romero. The 1960's version of the group included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford and for a brief stint was Norman Fell, Marilyn Monroe, Angie Dickinson, Juliet Prowse, and Shirley ...

Mickey Rooney, one of the greatest.
Remember that time I had to arrest Mickey Rooney...?
I have never seen them films. Wonder if Mickey Rooney is in it.
Headline of 1/4/39 VarietyMagazine I was just reading.Mickey Rooney B.O. Champion of 1938.Rooney has 2 movies in 2014
Someone mentioned the other day that Mickey Rooney looked like he was 100 years old. Hey, he is 94. Close enough.
Mickey Rooney and Justin Bieber are the most talented men I've ever seen!People saw it in Mickey but I wish more can see it in Justin :/
Replacing Justin Bieber with Mickey Rooney in the stream shows what social media in the 40s would’ve been like
Very good send off show last night. It seems to me that Jay Leno has still plenty "in the tank" if he wants to do something similar or go in a different direction. Nice to see Mickey Rooney (Andy Hardy) is still with us. Good luck and best wishes to both of them!!
Yoy always pass failure on the way to succeess. Mickey Rooney
I thought five rings was what was left of Mickey Rooney's first five marriages.
if you think Rooney should be our next captain.
On This Day In Herstory. February 7, 1963. This day in herstory found Judy opening in Lake Tahoe, right on the heels of taping her third television special. Scheduled for a three week run, things were cut short when she was hospitalized. Reportedly, Mickey Rooney stepped in and finished the engagement for Judy.
so apparently Mickey Rooney is still alive. color me surprised.
Moira Stuart is absolutely mental! Even more crazy than Mickey Rooney
but facially he is starting to look a bit like Mickey Rooney.
East coast says Leno cries. A better show that last night. I cannot believe they didn't take advantage of 60 seconds of Mickey Rooney last night. It was a real missed moment. Hey we go..

OMG! Even Mickey Rooney came to see Jay! Shouldn't that show NBC how much Jay is loved? I was crying too along with Sandra Bullock when she was saying how sweet Jay has always been to her. And I agree with Blake Shelton, Jay never expressed his own politics, he woul...
again, just like the TCM Cruise. Just replace the dinosaurs with Mickey Rooney.
Watching REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT. Starring mickey rooney and the husband from the honeymooners- Jackie Gleason? Looks like a great movie.
Last night Jay Leno was making fun of Mickey Rooney for being really old at 94 years old. Mickey stood-up and waved, smiled and laughed... I kinda felt sorry for Jay, because Jay didn't realize he was the second oldest guy in the room!
Well, I thought I would never see Mickey Rooney again, and behold...on Jay Leno last night, there he sat in the audience... he is 93 now...I met Mickey Rooney in 1978 in Encino California..I was a live in house keeper for the Van Vleet family who owned California Coin...Mr. woke me early to tell me that a photo shoot would be shot in the Bar room, for a magazine and Mickey would be the shoot. I needed to go buff up the room,... When he got there, he was introduced to me, and he asked me if i could get him some fresh squeezed oj. I got to talk to him out on the balcony alone while he drank his oj and looked out at the built in pool area. I took pictures of him when he left...thru the curtains in the front living room.I know he saw me, but he let me take the pics. It was so cool, because I felt like I was talkin to my dad. Mickey was really down to earth and it was an awesome experience.
THIS IS VERY NICE! And Leno was right, Mickey Rooney was the biggest star in the world, in his time. Play it forward guys.
Great to see Mickey Rooney on the penultimate last night

Mickey Rooney, Actor: The Fox and the Hound. Mickey Rooney was born Joe Yule Jr. on September 23, 1920 in Brooklyn, New York. He first took the stage as a toddler in his parents vaudeville act at 17 months old. He made his first film appearance in 1926. The following year, he played the lead charact...

Tonight we watched Michael Caine and Mickey Rooney in Pulp. Interesting film, uneven but had some good moments. But no cats.
Mickey Rooney was on Jay Leno's 2nd to the last show!
Watching Pete's Dragon only make me even more solidly convinced that Mickey Rooney doesn't age with real time.
So nice to see Mickey Rooney at the Tonight Show. Thank you Jay for all the laughter. Going to miss you💜
Watching Jay Leno. He will be gone from TV pretty soon. Did you see Mickey Rooney in the audience? He looks good for an old guy!

Wow Mickey Rooney on Leno. Didn't know he was still alive
Janice Parounagian, I looked this up for you. This only contains a partial list of movies filmed here in DeLand. DeLand has been the filming location for a number of television and movie projects, including the 1999 Adam Sandler comedy The Waterboy. Scenes showing the fictional South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs home football games were shot at Spec Martin Stadium. Classroom and exterior scenes were filmed at Stetson University. Scenes involving Sandler's character's home were actually filmed in neighboring DeBary. Ghost Story, starring Fred Astaire, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr and Craig Wasson, was filmed in part at Stetson University and the Holiday House. The HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon filmed several scenes on the campus of Stetson University. The 1999 independent film The First of May, starring Mickey Rooney and Joe DiMaggio, was shot on various locations throughout DeLand. Days of Thunder, starring Tom Cruise, was also partially filmed in DeLand.
Random fact. Some of the actors to make guest appearances on the show (but couldn't due to scheduling problems) included, Jerry Lewis, Annette Funicello, Kirk Douglas, Desi Arnaz, Soupy Sales, Willie Mays, Mickey Rooney & Mary Martin ( Larry Hagman's mother)
Casting Net: Meg Ryan will make her directorial debut with Ithaca, an adaptation of William Saroyan‘s novel The Human Comedy, which frequent co-star Tom Hanks will executive-produce. The story follows the teenage Homer Macauley, left at home in Ithaca, Calif., to care for his mother, sister, and little brother, Ulysses, while his older brother fights in World War II. Ryan will also star in the film opposite Melanie Griffith, Sam Shepard, and Jack Quaid (Ryan’s 21-year-old son, who played Marvel in The Hunger Games). Clarence Brown directed a version of the story in a 1943 film starring Mickey Rooney. Billy Bob Thornton is in talks to join Warner Bros.’ upcoming film adaption of the hit HBO series, Entourage. The film reunites Entourage stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrera, Kevin Dillon, and Jeremy Piven, and continues to follow the Hollywood adventures of Vinnie Chase (Grenier) and his crew. Thornton would play a billionaire cowboy-turned-film financier who sends his twenty-something ...
ALL 100 MOVIES I WATCHED IN 2013 AND HOW I FELT ABOUT THEM. DINER (1982): Back then movies about people sitting around shooting the breeze were considered somewhat groundbreaking. Definitely not the case now, and very little of note takes place, but it’s aged well enough, and the guys are likable rapscallions. B. THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS (2012): Aardman Animation does a pirate movie, with Hugh Grant voicing an enthusiastic but insecure Captain who leads his men on slapstick adventures. It tired me. D. THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN (1957): I like movies where people shrink or turn invisible and whatnot. This came on TCM one night and I gave it a shot. It’s the best movie about shrinking I’ve ever watched. The guy shrinks, gets trapped in his basement, and has to fight a spider. It’s so good. A. BOYS TOWN (1938): I was on a TCM kick earlier in the year, apparently. Spencer Tracy is a priest that oversees a boarding house for troubled boys. Mickey Rooney is the main trouble ...
Another one of Mayer's family pictures. I shouldn't make fun because it took in $2,824,000.00 and made a profit of $1,531,000.00. Nice piece of change. The Human Comedy is a 1943 American drama film directed by Clarence Brown and adapted by Howard Estabrook. It is often thought to be based on the William Saroyan novel of the same name, but Saroyan actually wrote the screenplay first, was fired from the movie project, and quickly wrote the novel and published it just before the film was released. It starred Mickey Rooney, Frank Morgan, James Craig, Marsha Hunt, Fay Bainter, Ray Collins, Van Johnson, Donna Reed and Jackie 'Butch' Jenkins. Robert Mitchum and Don DeFore appear uncredited as buddies of a soldier Barry Nelson with a night off from training, trying to meet girls and take in a movie. The film is the story of a teenaged Homer Macauley (Rooney) in high school, working part-time as a telegram delivery boy, in the fictional town of Ithaca, California, during World War II. The effects of the war on t ...
Here is my prized original LP of "Mad World" featuring - on both the front and the back - the autographs of Milton Berle, Mickey Rooney, Jonathan Winters, Buddy Hackett, Edie Adams, Don Knotts, Stan Freberg, Barrie Chase, Carl Reiner (thanks to Jeff Heise), Norman Fell, Jesse White, Mike Mazurka, Peter Falk, Marvin Kaplan (thanks to Earl Kress, who took this album with him to New York when he interviewed Marvin for a Hanna Barbera DVD bonus material session) and Stanley Kramer. I'd love to Sid Caesar and Jerry Lewis on here, too!!
Watching "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" and mentally recasting for today. So far I have Jim Gaffigan for Jonathan Winters, Ty Burrell for Milton Berle, Carol Burnett for Ethel Merman, Steve Carell for Sid Caesar, Paul Rudd for Mickey Rooney, Zach Galifianakis for Buddy Hackett, Joe Pesci for Jimmy Durante, and John Lithgow for Spencer Tracy. Oh, and Larry David for Phil Silvers and Hugh Laurie for Terry Thomas.
I finally saw Otto Preminger's infamous failed attempt at achieving honorary hippie status, 1968's "skidoo". While, yes, it IS a bad movie, one that boggles the mind when stopping to consider exactly WHAT were they were thinking, it's not quite as entertaining, awful-wise, as I would've expected. Jackie Gleason takes an LSD trip! Carol Channing strips down to bra and panties for Frankie Avalon! Groucho Marx plays God! These things all sound far more intriguing in cold hard print than they ultimately do up on the screen. But you've also got Mickey Rooney, George Raft, Arnold Stang, Fred Clark, Peter Lawford, Slim Pickens, and three Bat-villains emeritus: Frank Gorshin, Ceasar Romero, and Burgess Meredith, so this thing has a lot of star power, however dimming. Worth a look, even if it's not The Worst Big Budget Movie of All Time. (My favorite part was Harry Nilsson singing the end credits, names of cast and crew alike, even right on down to the copyright notice--now, THAT's entertainment!!..)
Here is some interesting facts I found out: Rochester was a very “happening” place for film stars in the 1920’s. Mickey Rooney started his career here, a theatre stock group here fired Bette Davis and Bud Abbott was the manager of a theatre here before he was paired opposite Lou Costello!!!
Watching 'Night At The Museum' for the first time & can't stop yelling "Mickey Rooney", as Kristen Wiig, doing Judy Garland.
I played violin in a string section once with Charlie Watts at the Supper Club in New York, but it was a jazz gig, believe it or not. Turns out that all that the drummer of The Rolling Stones really cares about is jazz. Hard to believe. More power to him. But I got to meet and talk to Keith Richard (that's his real name) back stage, which was great. Keith may tower as a rock guitarist and songwriter, but he's very short. Other short stars I've met were Charles Bronson, Mickey Rooney, and Jane Seymour. All around 5 ft. tall.
The character, Mickey Mouse, was named after american the actor Mickey Rooney: whose mother Walt Disney had dated.
Anthony Quinn, Julie Harris, Jackie Gleason AND Mickey Rooney. Knew from the get-go it wasn't going to end well.
One of my favorite flicks of all time. A cornucopia of classic comedians. Ethel Merman gets on your last nerve in the most hysterical way, ever. Sid Caesar, Jonathan Winters, Buddy Hackett, Spencer Tracy, Mickey Rooney, Edie Adams. Dorothy Provine and many, many more, On MGM- HD, now! It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
Mickey Rooney & Peter Fonda. Mickey a ladies man is 96 yrs old. Wow! I guess comedy & laughter really does a body, mind & spirit good! :)

Comic Jerry Van *** had two sitcom offers on the table in 1965 but sadly chose the wrong character. He felt that being the son of a porter in My Mother, the Car was preferable to playing the bumbling first mate on Gilligan's Island. Diminutive actor Mickey Rooney was first offered the role of Archie Bunker on TV's All in the Family. However, The *** soundly refused the role, saying that the obnoxious bigot was "un-American" and that the job would prove to be career suicide for anyone who took it. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas wanted Tom Selleck for the role of Indiana Jones, but Selleck had already committed to the TV series Magnum, P.I., and the producers wouldn't give him the necessary time off. The role of tough girl Rizzo in the 1978 film Grease was originally offered to Lucie Arnaz, with the proviso that she took a screen test first. However, mama Lucille Ball declared that testing was beneath her famous offspring, so the part went to Stockard Channing. Chevy Chase rejected the lead role of Les . ...

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT LA Groggy eyed, cheated from a gracious exit, static in airwaves plying a wavy screen. Blink once then twice, winking at the door, wishing fulfillment with hand shadows on wigwam walls. No one was amused, creaky chairs scraped splinters in the board. Blue dolphins jumping synapses asking, "What have you done to Flipper? Last I saw he had a star on the WALK Of FAME." Persian carpets frayed and sagging plod down sloping pavement curling this way and that ... met at the junction of Sunset and Vine. From far beyond a great divide ... hopscotch wheat plains ... she gazed down into the canyon ... from a dim dingy room ... jerking sodas for wannabe poets hawking pre-owned beamers.

There was no call of the wild ... there was no call at all ... just a silent unrelenting texting ... sig ...
When Hollywood stars were real men There was a time when Hollywood reflected American values of hard work, integrity and perseverance, and that's how the heroes won the day, got the girl, and often lived in real life. And this was especially true in the 1940s and 1950s, when many of Hollywood's leading men put their film careers on hold and enlisted in one of the armed forces to fight for America. Examples include but are not limited to: Stewart Hayden, US Marines and OSS. Smuggled guns into Yugoslavia and parachuted into Croatia. James Stewart, US Army Air Corps. Bomber pilot who rose to the rank of General. Ernest Borgnine, US Navy. Gunners Mate 1c, destroyer USS Lamberton. Ed McMahon, US Marines. Fighter Pilot. (Flew OE-1 Bird Dogs over Korea as well.) Telly Savalas, US Army. Walter Matthau, US Army Air Corps., B-24 Radioman/Gunner and cryptographer. Steve Forrest, US Army. Wounded, Battle of the Bulge. Jonathan Winters, USMC.

I have never forgotten the line from Mickey Rooney's memoir about how he's "met gals who could snap carrots in their *** no hands."

Personally I just can't get past Divekick's announcer's Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's-style voice work. :\
so i just realized that andy rooney and mickey rooney are two different people. the Radioactive Man ep of the Simpsons makes more sense now.
It strikes me that different people have different ideas about what the classic Christmas specials are. Here's the authoritative canon: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Burl Ives) Santa Claus is Comin' to Town (Fred Astaire, Mickey Rooney) Frosty the Snowman (Jimmy Durante) The Little Drummer Boy (Greer Garson) How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a classic as well, but it's not a Rankin/Bass production, and so is in a different category.

Every year before the winter solstice the wise men of Quizland gather to write legends of heroic deeds. Illuminated scrolls of vellum preserve the tales of noble conflict but this year will be different. The massacre at Botley caused grave concerns but after what happened last night nothing will ever be the same. I sit here trembling dear reader, I can tell this story with quiet humility or indulge you with the full horror and glory of a night to remember. My trembling heart pleads for humility but my brain urges the truth. So sod humility, it’s on with the arrogant trousers for a tale of carnage and intellectual brutality that shook the very essence of Quizland. The southern raiders set forth into the hills. Lurid tales of a rabid eight legged quiz machine chewing everything in its path unbeaten this season scoring more points than anyone else had reached our ears. They called themselves the Squirrel this was no fluffy creature. Led by David & Rob, twin Masterminders, they had savaged the mighty Hen & ...

Christmas movie - "The Year Without a Santa Claus" voiced by the incomparable Shirley Booth and Mickey Rooney.
Howard Strickling, perhaps at one time the most powerful man in Hollywood. I know we featured him last year but I had a message from a newer member asking about him. Mr. Strickling, who once described himself as ''just an ambitious punk from a farming town named Gardena'' when he joined the Metro Company in 1919, headed the M-G-M publicity department from 1934 until he retired in 1969. Other stars whom he helped were Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. In those days, his department did everything, there being ''no agents, personal press agents or answering services,'' he once said. Survived Shakeups ''We told stars what they could and couldn't say,'' Mr. Strickling said in 1969, ''and they did what we said because they knew we knew best. When things went wrong, we had a way of covering up for them, too.'' Closely associated with Louis B. Mayer, Irvin G. Thalberg and Howard Dietz in building M-G-M, Mr. Strickling began as an assistant to Pete Smith, publicity and advertising directo ...
Hi, fellow Shakespeare thespians and readers. Two weeks from this Thursday we start a new year with Shakespeare.

We will be in Room 109 at ICC West where things will start at 7 p.m. Tomorrow, Tuesday, December 17th, is Shakespeare day on TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES (Channel 50 on Cable One). Get this line up: 5:30 a.m. A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM with James Cagney, *** Powell and Mickey Rooney. (1935) 8:15 a.m. ROMEO AND JULIET with Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer from 1936. 10:30 a.m. 1969 brings us HAMLET with Nicol Williamson (sorry to say, it isn't very good) 12:30.

One of the most unusual Alcatraz movies is the 1968 comedy "Skidoo", directed by Otto Preminger, The movie was a was a notorious bomb, despite an amazing cast which included Jackie Gleason, Carol Channing, Frankie Avalon, Ted Cassidy, Fred Clark, Michael Constantine, Frank Gorshin, John Phillip Law, Slim Pickens, Peter Lawford, Burgess Meredith, George Raft, Cesar Romero, Mickey Rooney and Groucho Marx playing "God" (in his final film appearance). Singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson not only plays a guard, but also sings the entire closing credit sequence (all cast, crew, and copyright information). And like all good Alcatraz-as-prison movies, there is an escape.

So sad. Joan Fontaine passed away. This is one of our last links to the classic Hollywood films of the 30s and 40s. Fontaine's sister, Olivia De Havilland is still alive, and so is Mickey Rooney. That's about it, I think. Watch Fontaine in Hitchcock's "Rebecca" (1940). I think I'll be watching it tonight.
Joan Fontaine, Peter O'Toole, Ray Price - it's like the all-star game of death! Someone warn Mickey Rooney ASAP...
Sitting in ya Reservoir home as a kid , what was ya favourite movie ..This was mine. Mickey Rooney as Whitey Marsh .It's 75 years old ..Classic ...BOYS TOWN .Whats was yours .
I've been real busy filming a movie lately. Now it's finally time off for the holidays. I'm going to start my vacation with a glass of eggnog and a half gallon of gin. Mickey Rooney is on his way over. Kiss my *** sobriety. nnyyeah.
Saw The new Hobbit movie tonight. and now I am going to sit and watch a very very old tape of Christmas movies starting with Santa Claus is coming to town (with Fred Astaire and Mickey Rooney) the tape is so old that it has early 90's TV ads on it
During my shredding I had about an hour of a Clark Griswold in the attic experience, sans falling through the bedroom ceiling. Came across some old photos, letters from my girls to their Grandma Lynda, and some memorabilia from my days as a reporter, including a photo I took of Mickey Rooney when he was here in Grayling in 2000. Have his autograph and got to interview him, too. How cool is that?
man,my dead pool game ends jan 8th.only got 1 out of 10 so far this year...whats the chances Mickey Rooney,Abe Vigoda,Larry Storch,Jim Nabors,Kirk Douglass,And George H.W Bush are on the same plane/bus that goes down or over a cliff? no I didnt think so either.
Watching channel 2 with Rudolph the Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Frosty Return how fun to revisit these. Loving Burl Ives, Mickey Rooney , Jimmy Durranty.
In Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa is a *** In The Year Without a Santa Clause, Santa is a drama queen. He is played by Mickey Rooney who is a little angry *** so we've come full circle
I'm almost done reading Ava Gardner The Secret Conversations. It's the story of her interviews with a man hired to be her ghost writer. I don't envy her life, but I wouldn't say tragic. This is odd because I have rarely ever been fascinated by actors, I worked with commercial actors all my career and never gave it a second thought, it was their job. Movie stardom is a whole different game. It's just a really weird life. I did work with her first Husband Mickey Rooney on several occasions and really found him fascinating. But her last husband Frank Sinatra is painted in a light different from what I casually thought I knew and now I'm interested to know more about him.
So Maggie is off to her dance, and Colleen is running xmas errands, so we are home and I am trying to get the 3 kids psyched to watch the netflix Disney 1977 classic "Pete's Dragon," but it is not going well; despite the fact that seeing this movie in Avalon, NJ in the summer of 1977 was a favorite childhood memory of mine, the kids are not buying it. I am selling it hard, telling the 3 kids it has Mickey Rooney, and Jim Bacchus, who were famous Back in the Day, and lots of live-action and cartoon magic, but since it does not have Bumblebee or Smurfs or X-Men, they do not understand the plot or what the %$is going on. At least Brendan gets points for asking, "Is this some kind of musical?"

Have you ever thought about the real old child stars? Not Willie Aims and Todd Bridges. Liz Taylor was a child star. Apparently, judging by her marital resume, she never sat down to get to know herself. At age 26, she had three husbands under her belt. Eddie Fisher cheated on his wife, Debbie Reynalds aka Mary Francis Reynalds and married Liz. All those two cared about was their self-interest. Debbie and Eddie are the parents of Carrie Fisher who played Sally's friend in the movie "When Harry Met Sally" and Princess Leia in "Star Wars". I don't want a step-mother under those circumstances. Liz's marriages add up to 29 years. Judy Garland, born Francis Ethel Gum in 1922, had drug problems and married 3 times. I saw on a show that there was ambugity on her father's sexuality. Garland was the mother of Liza Minnelli who married four times with Michael Jackson at the last wedding. The Tin Man is one of Liza's ex-fathers-law. Can you imagine having Dorothey adn the Tin Man as your grandparents? Mickey Rooney, ...
Ninety-six years ago today, Father Edward Flanagan founded Boys Town in Nebraska. He firmly believed that: “There are no bad boys. There is only bad environment, bad training, bad example, bad thinking.” In 1938, Hollywood told Flanagan's story in the classic film 'Boys Town', which starred Spencer Tracy as the priest and Mickey Rooney as troubled boy Whitey Marsh. The movie went on to win two Oscars: one for Tracy as Best Actor and one for Eleanore Griffin and Dore Scharey for Best Writing, Original Story. The film was also nominated for Best Picture, but lost to Frank Capra's 'You Can't Take it With You' (1938).
I just walked out of work and I don't come back until after I've been to Disney World with Liz Konieczny Whitman and Mickey Rooney and Mickey and I are homeowners!!
on a scale from Walter Cronkite to Mickey Rooney, how kookoo are you for caca puffs?
"Christmas Shoes", the movie. Gets me everytime...:-( Next: "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear", the movie, starring Mickey Rooney!
TAYLOR WATCH: William Ludwig. chief writer of the Andy Hardy series, recalled, when child star Elizabeth Taylor would walk into the MGM commissary; Everybody stopped, turned, and a looked at this beautiful child, she was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen.Jean Porter an MGM child actor during the time Elizabeth was making "National Velvet" remembers little Elizabeth Taylor at the MGM commissary having lunch with Mickey Rooney, Jane Powell, and Judy Garland.I thought Elizabeth was the most gorgeous little creature I had ever seen, I would just sit there and gaze at this little girl eating her lunch...I don't think anybody had ever seen such a beautiful face.GME

Been watching ABC Family all day. Just watched that grinch now watching The Year Without A Santa Claus. I love those old claymation movies. Mickey Rooney voices Santa, and I love his voice. Like... that's how I think Santa would really sound :)
Manhattan Melodrama (1934) was on TCM last night. I watched a few minutes of it and saw a teenaged Mickey Rooney playing young Clark Gable in the opening scenes. Mickey is still with us today. And to put that in a little more perspective, John Dillinger was shot coming out of this flick back during its first run at the Biograph Theater. Kind of amazing.
Here is someone we don't hear much about and yet he was in so many great movies. Paul Lucas. Watch on the Rhine, when he played a man working against the Nazis, a role he originated in the Broadway premiere of the play of the same name in 1941. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for the role, winning out over luminary efforts as Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, Gary Cooper in For Whom the Bell Tolls, Walter Pidgeon in Madame Curie, and Mickey Rooney in The Human Comedy.
Ok - it's December so what is your favorite Christmas special? Mine is Santa Clause is Coming to Town with Fred Astaire & Mickey Rooney for animation.
You know how you can "lose" something for years and years and years and then it just suddenly pops into your life again? About 8 or 9 years ago back when I was away at college I remember watching part of a movie on the Turner Classic Movies channel. I'd missed the beginning so I never saw the title, and I had to leave for class before it ended so I didn't catch the name then. Back then the internet existed (duh), but the things I remembered about the movie (set in the 50s or 60s, a mostly Asian-American cast, a dream sequence dance routine in a mod-style apartment) were apparently too vague, or I was just really bad at searching or something, because I never found it. I always remembered it though, and wondered, especially because of that detail about how nearly the entire cast was made up of Asian and Asian-American actors depicting Asian and Asian-American characters (imagine that!). But considering the time period, that was pretty unusual (think Mickey Rooney in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and you'll know ...

National Velvet (Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney) was filmed on the Pebble Beach golf course, I think before it was a golf course. Or at least it looks like there were no fairways. But Carmel Bay and Point Lobos are in the background.
Here's some interesting trivia for the "kids" (I enjoyed reading it) The name of the dog from "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" is Max. Kermit the Frog is left handed. Mickey Mouse is known as"Topolino" in Italy. Walt Disney named Mickey Mouse after Mickey Rooney, whose mother he dated for some time. Source: Chad H., Seattle, Washington. Mr. Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood is an ordained minister. 101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan (Wendy) are the only two Disney cartoon features with both parents that are present and don't die throughout the movie. In Disney's "Fantasia", the Sorcerer's name is "Yensid" (Disney backwards.) Walt Disney had wooden teeth. Walt Disney's autograph bears no resemblance to the famous Disney logo. It was illegal to sell ET dolls in France because there is a law against selling dolls without human faces. The name Wendy was made up for the book "Peter Pan" Pinocchio was made of pine. Pinocchio is Italian for "pine eyes." Mel Blanc (the voice of Bugs Bunny) was allergic to carrots. Disn ...
Some interesting November stats for Riveting Riffs Magazine up to November 17th, people landed on our website, usually a particular interview or review 85,000 times from searches done in Google, Yahoo and Bing. More people than that visited the magazine, but since those are common search engines I thought you would like to know that. The most common people to come up in searches and who ended up being read about in Riveting Riffs Magazine, in order were; Cherie Currie, Gloria Loring, Chuck Negron, Paula Nelson and Keri Noble. On the more lighthearted side of things, thanks to a film that my good friend, actress Mara New appeared in a few years ago with Mickey Rooney, the people who searched for strip poker also ended up on Riveting Riffs Magazine's website. Mara New appeared in a film with some other great actors including Ronnie Howard's dad and the late Ernest Borgnine and it was set in a seniors home where they decided to start a nightclub. That's all true, I am not making any of this up. :)

Mickey Rooney and Margaret O'Brien are the two people I absolutely can not stand
Wonderful cast in this film from 1944. Elizabeth Taylor was only 12 years old and Mickey Rooney wasn't much older by a few years (he just turned 93 last month, Happy belated Birthday), Angela Lansbury was old 18 (HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ms. Landsbury on Oct. 16th).
That awkward moment when you realize that no one in the world would recognize that you just quoted a line from a film. "'A stinging ant just stung me!' 'Ants don't sting, they bite'" Yeah, that movie was released in the '40's, Jenn. And even if it does have Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney and Angela Lansbury, it is only an old horsie movie. FYI, I quoted that movie line because I had a stinging ant *inside my freaking brassiere!*!!! ***

Today in music history.September 17th 1923, Born on this day, Hank Williams, the biggest country star ever. He scored 36 Top 10 Country hits including, 'Your Cheating Heart' and 'Hey Good Lookin'. Williams died, age 29, in the backseat of a Cadillac on January 1st, 1953 on the way to a gig. 1931, The first long-play(LP) audio record, a 33 1/3 rpm recording, was demonstrated at the Savoy Plaza Hotel in New York by RCA-Victor. The venture was doomed to fail however due to the high price of the record players, which started around $95 (about $1140 in today's dollars) and wasn't revived until 1948. 1964, During a US tour The Beatles appeared at the Municipal Stadium in Kansas City. The Beatles were paid $150,000 for the show, which was more than any other act had ever been paid for a live show.

Here is a little more background on the Andy Hardy films: MGM writer Samuel Marx happened to see a play called Skidding about a small-town judge, James Hardy, and his all-American family that included a teenage son, Andy. Bringing the story back to MGM, the studio turned it into 'A Family Affair' (1937) starring Lionel Barrymore as the judge and Mickey Rooney as Andy. The B picture surprised everyone with its popularity and a series was born. The Andy Hardy films were a personal favorite of MGM head man Louis B. Mayer. He personally saw to it that Andy never disrespected his mother or got into serious trouble. If the script didn’t meet with Mayer’s approval, he simply crossed out the offending scenes. Mayer must have known exactly what he was doing. The Andy Hardy series won a special Oscar in 1942 “for its achievement in representing the American way of life.”

Glenn: The lost sheep, us included, are starting to come home Thursday, Sep 12, 2013 at 1:29 PM CDT On radio this morning Glenn did something only he could – turning the story of a lost sheep at his ranch into the perfect analogy for making sense of the world around us today. About a year ago, the sheep on Glenn’s ranch were attacked by a pack of wolves and coyotes. The family assumed all had been lost until just a few days ago, when one of the lost sheep wandered back. It had survived. “I want to tell you a story about something that happened to me on the ranch last week. I’ve never understood looking for that one lost sheep until we did actually have to look for one lost sheep. Last year, we had our sheep killed by coyotes, and one of them was cowering on our front porch when we came home. The coyotes had come and just got into the sheep pen and just killed them and eaten them, and one of them was up against our door just looking for our help, and we were gone. We just assumed that they had all ...

Actor Lewis Shepard Stone was born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1879. by the time he was 21, he was sporting gray hair and had served in the Spanish-American War. After starting his acting career in the theater, he made his silent screen debut in 1915 only to have his work interrupted by World War I where he once again served his country. Although Stone appeared in over 150 films during his 38-year career, he is best remembered as everyone's favorite dad, Judge Hardy, in the MGM's popular Andy Hardy series starring Mickey Rooney in the title role. Stone was still working when a heart attack took his life in 1953 at the age of 73. After hearing noise in his backyard, he went outside to find a group of teens trespassing and as he chased them off, he suffered a massive heart attack and died on the spot.

With Established NYC ACTING COACH CAROLINE THOMAS September 22 in Williamsburg VA Teen session - 10 – 12 ($80) Adult session - 1 – 4 ($100) Knowing how to audition for commercials is a great way to break into acting! Often when you meet an agent for the first time, they will have you read a commercial to see if you can act. If you pass the test, then they frequently send you on auditions for both commercials and other types of acting jobs. Commercials can be hard because you’re selling a product and sometimes you have to look straight into the camera, which can feel unnatural. In this Workshop, while you are learning how to audition for a commercial, you’re also learning – this is the good part – how to act in other things like TV shows and movies! Why is this?

This is such a good picture of Mickey Rooney. He is looking great!
There are few movies that I could watch over and over again. One such movie is, "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World". With such stars as Milton Berle, Mickey Rooney, Buddy Hackett, Jonathan Winters, Spencer Tracy, Ethel Merman (and the list goes on), this film was considered one of the first of the "chase" genres. And though I have the DVD and have seen it numerous times, I'm excited about seeing it tonight on the big screen for the very first time.

"LOVE" REDISCOVERED: A fan put my rendition of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's "People Will Say We're in Love" -- one of several standards on my early-1950s album for Jubilee, FOOLS RUSH IN -- together with this lovely collage of my publicity photos and images from my role in the 1957 Warner Bros. military drama THE D.I. A few publicity photos of gorgeous actor and former beauty queen Jackie Loughery, with whom I appeared in THE D.I., pop up about halfway through the video; Jackie later married the movie's top-billed star and director, Jack Webb. And that's me with a hamming Mickey Rooney on the set of the 1951 MGM musical drama THE STRIP in the thumbnail. Altogether a very nice vintage compilation of images set to music. Many thanks to whoever assembled this! oxo, Monica
