Was watching this before the show tonight. What star quality. Ann Miller and Mickey Rooney, SUGAR BABIES 1980.
Notes on the Emmy Award show. Seth Myers did a great job! Kept it clean and moving along. My favorite comment of his was about Duck Dynasty being the most recorded show on VCRs! The only inappropriate comment I heard (and I missed some of it) was from Amy Poehler. It was early and kids were probably watching. UGH I thought it was inappropriate to single out Robin Williams after the In memory of section. Mickey Rooney and Lauren Bacall had longer careers and Maya Angelou contributed more for the betterment of society. Everyone lost was important to many. The nominations in each category were spot on. I would have had a hard time voting! Congrats to the producers of the award show. I thought it was classy... except for Amy. Congrats to all the winners, too.

MOVIES HAVE THE POWER TO defy the law of space and time. As such, this double feature takes me back in time to visit and re-appreciate the grace and star quality of the silver screen icons of yesteryear such as Sophia Loren, Richard Harris, Eva Gardner, Gene Hackman, Candise and Mickey Rooney. You don't need a time machine to travel back in time. Just watch old movies like I do. (My new bluray review 7/12)
Just finished watching National Velvet and can confirm that Mickey Rooney was indeed world class.
R.I.P. Horace Silver. One of the greatest Jazz pianists of our time. He and Art Blakey formed the Jazz Messengers together. Horace's solo career was amazing as well as a side man. During his solo career he was best known for these albums, Sister Sadie, Cape Verdean Blues, and Song for My Father. We lose icons like Horace, Casey Kasem, Bob Hoskins, Mickey Rooney, Harold Ramis, and Sid Caesar in the same year, Sad.
Moon River~Barbra Streisand "Moon River" is a song composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics written by Johnny Mercer. It received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for its first performance by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. It also won Mancini the 1962 Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Mercer the Grammy Award for Song of the Year. Since its original performance, the song has been covered by many other artists. Breakfast at Tiffany's is a 1961 American romantic comedy film starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney. The film was directed by Blake Edwards and released by Paramount Pictures. It is loosely based on the novella of the same name by Truman Capote. Breakfast at Tiffany's was received positively at the time, and was nominated for five Academy Awards, Best Actress for Hepburn, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Art Direction, winning two for Best Original Score and Best Original Song for th ...

It's on again!!! One of the greatest movies of all time!!! "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!" Starring...everyone!!! Mickey Rooney, Ethel Merman, Jimmy Durante, Sid Caesar, Milton Berle, Buddy Hackett, Jonathan Winters, Spencer Tracy, *** Shawn, Edie Adams, Phil Silvers, and more...non-stop laughs and a bevy of classic cars and car chases. This flick never gets old!
Watching a great old movie with a long time family friend, ( Jimmy Lloyd) in it. Its a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world. Oh and there's a few other stars of the time that weren't too bad in it too. Ethel Merman, Spencer Tracy, Mickey Rooney, Jonathan Winters, Chill Wills, Milton Berle, Buddy Hackett.
Girl Crazy 1990 studio cast Here is the most faithful recording of this score.Judy Blazer,my friend ,sings the original role of Ginger Rogers...The role of Ethel Merman is played here by Lorna Luft... "Widely known for its (very loose) 1943 Hollywood adaptation with Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland, this musical is among the Gershwins' very best. Originally a star vehicle for Bert Lahr, the original 1930 production also featured Ginger Rogers and Ethel Merman. This new complete recording includes pros like Lorna Luft, Judy Blazer, Vicki Lewis, and David Carroll, and all of them do a bang-up job. The book is a mere pretext: most of the songs are self-contained and could be used in just about any story, and many quickly became classics ("Embraceable You," "But Not for Me," "I Got Rhythm," "Bidin' My Time.") The upbeat score--the original pit orchestra included Glenn Miller, Gene Krupa, and Benny Goodman--sees George Gershwin in complete sync with his jazz-crazed times. There's barely a wrinkle on this 70-year ...
I'm 70 years late but I just discovered I love Mickey Rooney! I recorded a bunch of his early movies, Andy Hardy and ones with Judy Garland & Shirley Temple...he's amazing, such charisma, confidence, cocky as can be! Ava Gardner married him?? Gotta read his bio

How long has our war on Terror been going on? How many celebeties of this time period have stepped up and served the military. I can't think of one. But during the 4 years that World War II was raging around the world there were many that serve. Many were major stars. Here is a list I found. Don Adams - USMC, Contracted malaria on Guadalcanal [ John Agar - US Army Air Corps, Sergeant. Gene Autry - Flight Officer, Air Transport Command, 1942-1946 Eddie Albert - US Navy. Drove Amtracks in several Pacific invasions. He served in the landings at Saipan in 1943, where he rescued wounded and stranded Marines from the beachhead. At Tarawa, he was wounded and lost most of his hearing and earned the Bronze Star. James Arness - US Army, Wounded at Anzio. Purple Heart and Bronze Star Martin Balsam - US Army. Richard Boone - US Navy. Neville Brand - US Army. Ernest Borgnine he served in the U.S. Navy for twelve years, joining before WWII. Mel Brooks (Melvin Kaminsky) joined army in WWII and became a combat eng ...

My impression on reading "Enlightenment as Mass Deception" again has made me realize a few things: 1) Adorno and Horkheimer really didn't like Mickey Rooney, 2) the fact that Mickey Rooney JUST died means that he was really, really old and, therefore, 3) in the war between Adorno/Horkheimer v. Rooney I think Mickey Rooney wins.

So bereft of comprehension was it that Madam Miaow felt compelled to write a FAQ U BBC. FAQs about BEAs for the BBC, casting directors and reviewers: Q: Is it true that East Asians can only play East Asians? A: East Asian people are said to possess a wide range of human emotions. If you are nice to them, they are often nice back. If you are horrid, they may very well get cross. If, for example, you are in an accident, you may be lucky enough to find East Asians willing to call an ambulance, staunch the bleeding and tie a tourniquet, clear your airways, crack a joke to cheer you up and phone your mum to let her know you may be some time. In real life in the UK we find Chinese bus drivers, Korean traffic wardens, Thai teachers, plus scientists, lawyers and doctors from a whole slew of East Asian origins. Look out for them — we're sure you'll find them. Q: Is it true that only East Asians can play East Asians? A: Yes, when white actors play East Asians — such as John Wayne as Genghis Khan, Mickey Rooney ...

Today in Television History:. 1955 - The "Mickey Rooney Show" was aired on NBC for the last time.
From Wikipedia: "One of the distinct characteristics of every Marion's Piazza location is the photos found on the walls. During the 1960s, 1970s, and into the 1980s, the Kenley Players would hold cast parties at Marion's after their summer theatre performances. Today, the walls are filled with black and white photographs of the parties. Many of the photos are autographed by the celebrities. The photographs include celebrities such as Paul Lynde, Desi Arnaz, Jr., Sandy Duncan, Sally Field, McLean Stevenson, Barry Williams, Gary Sandy, Loni Anderson, Robert Goulet, Mickey Rooney, William Shatner, Tim Conway, Morgan Fairchild, Dom DeLuise, Joyce DeWitt, Billy Crystal, Bill Bixby, Karla DeVito, Rip Taylor, and George Hamilton among others. The photos serve as memorial of Marion's tradition in the Dayton area." We took advantage of this special last night! :)

This week, another major character in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" left us. However, this time it wasn't an actor or crew member. Instead, the central set of the film, "Santa Rosita State Park," was mercilessly destroyed in a horrific melee of saws and flying wood chips. The specifics? Over 20 large trees that were planted specially by Kramer's technicians to simulate a park were cut down. Deep tire tracks can be seen leading to the sad stumps of the trees. The "Big Comma," the last remaining vestige of the Big W, was included in the destruction, making the central plot point of the nearly 51-year-old film a mere memory. The park set was built in 1962, in the backyard of the Harden Gatehouse at 5500 Palos Verdes Dr. S, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. Formerly a bleak field and cliff, director Stanley Kramer ordered his production techs to create a beautiful oasis for the Big W scenes. That beautiful oasis is now a completely unrecognizable flat dirt field, probably slated for completely different landscapin ...
A year ago today, my husband & I buried his Dad, we traveled to Atlanta, where he had been in a Nursing Home for about a year. He died from complications from his Alzheimers, he constantly fell & was under constant care. He was a double for Mickey Rooney & just a riot! Shortly before he died, he escaped the Nursing Home, walked to a Harley Dealer & somehow conned the salesman into letting him ride off on a Harley!!! His five sons turned the funeral parlor into a something shy of a brothel, Lololll, only kidding, but they had no chairs set up, every one stood, I was waiting for the rolling bar to come in, the five sons told story after story that brought me to tears of laughter.when I got there & stood over his coffin, my sister in laws, yeah, all of them, surrounded me, they had placed one of my beautiful handmade rosaries in his hands, he holds them through eternity!

Just watched Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time. Great film. Male prostitution, a lady that gets paid $50 every time she goes to the powder room and an Asian guy played rather badly (toe curling bad) by Mickey Rooney. Very well acted by both Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. I would want to watch it again Perhaps after I try and erase the Mickey Rooney part out of my head first.

Esther Jane Williams (August 8, 1921 – June 6, 2013) was an American competitive swimmer and actress. Williams set multiple national and regional swimming records in her late teens as part of the Los Angeles Athletic Club swim team. Unable to compete in the 1940 Summer Olympics because of the outbreak of World War II, she joined Billy Rose's Aquacade, where she took on the role vacated by Eleanor Holm after the show's move from New York City to San Francisco. While in the city, she spent five months swimming alongside Olympic gold medal winner and Tarzan star, Johnny Weissmuller.[1] Williams caught the attention of MGM scouts at the Aquacade. After appearing in several small roles, alongside Mickey Rooney in an Andy Hardy film, and future five-time co-star Van Johnson in A Guy Named Joe, Williams made a series of films in the 1940s and early 1950s known as "aquamusicals," which featured elaborate performances with synchronized swimming and diving. From 1945 to 1949, Williams had at least one film listed ...
Memorial Day, again here (- it seems to come around so often...) And of course as always with these days they seem to serve (loaded word) a kind of universal purpose: to decry all war - for as we all know who have seen it there's no honor no real glory to be had in serving in a war in the name of freedom or of God or whatever and there is no real nobility in poetry about it either actually yes neither in pain or tragedy itself nor in homage to or remembrance of it, no value or "wisdom" to be gained from lives filled with sadness as a result of it but if at least there is a will to share it as to share a burden all is not lost - so to that end here's a fresh one from that old corpse-littered battlefield of the mind (in response to that insistent prompt): poem on the border (November 25th) not much just more empty thoughts about these strange wars we conduct with words like "duty" some connect to it for whatever reason they may have or not but still comply perhaps of a perceived necessity who knows about a ...
A 19 year old Ava Gardner & Mickey Rooney on their wedding day, 1942.
Recently, I saw a story entitled: "Mickey Rooney's Tragic End!" The gist of it is that he was one of the biggest stars of the 20th Century, but when he died his estate was worth only $18,000. That doesn't sound very tragic to me. He lived to be 93. He was one of the most famous men in America. At one point he was one of the wealthiest actors in Hollywood. You know, you can't take it with you when you go... so, it's awe-inspiring that he was able to spend it all before he died. That's not tragic, that's a winning score!

Why does anyone care about the Kardashian freak show? Another wedding in a long line of weddings as she chases Mickey Rooney and Zsa Zsa for the record for the most weddings of a celebrity without talent. And worse, I know some people who try to emulate them! Losers mimicking losers. A giant waste of life.
I heard that the comedy Night At The Museum, 3, starring Ben Stiller, Ben Kingsley, and Robin Williams, is in production only a few miles from where I live. (parts of it...) Ben Kingsley as an Egyptian Pharaoh, and Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt. this should be good. :-) Sadly, it also features Mickey Rooney's last film role before he passed away.

Ken Carroll- Keith Green sings a song titled, "He'll take care of the rest." Think about that phrase in light of the world we live in. How many things clutter your mind and weigh you down? In John 14:27 Jesus gives us two commands.don't worry and don't be afraid. This scripture was instrumental in leading me to Christ. I read this while in the U.S. Navy, I remember saying, if He could do this for me, I was coming with Him. Today I write these words because He has done that and more. I remember telling people they were *** for believing such an antiquated tradition and book. Then He met me. Actually He was waiting for me.waiting for me to fall down and not want to get up. That didn't take too long! He picked me up, held me close, turned me around, took my hand and told me to walk with Him. Isaiah 41:10-13, John 10:3-4 Still walking with Him today and yes, He is still walking with me. Our life is good or miserable by virtue of the company we choose or the company we reject.

MICKEY MOUSE & MICKEY ROONEY Posted: 12 May 2014 12:30 AM PDT To get an idea of how far removed from reality or at least from the truth liberals are, you merely had to listen to them insist that when Eric Holder appeared before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, boohooing about the way he and Obama are treated, he wasn’t referring to the fact they’re both black. The truth is that virtually everything Holder does or says is racial in nature. Some would even say “racist.” He was the fellow, you might recall, who called whites cowards for being unwilling to speak honestly about race, by which he meant fess up to being bigots. Also, according to certain lawyers at the Justice Department, upon taking office, Holder announced it would not be his policy to charge non-whites with hate crimes or civil rights infractions. What’s more, he proved he meant it when he refused to indict the Black Panthers for intimidating white voters in Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential election. Under his despi ...

I'm watching" Humoresque" (tho not all at once) and found that the actor who played the John Garfield role as a child is Robert Blake. What are your favorite movies with child actors/actresses who later became very famous? Mine are Elizabeth Taylor in "Jane Eyre" and later in" Lassie Come Home". Roddy McDowell in "How Green was My Valley" Jean Simmons in "Great Expectations". Mickey Rooney in "Midsummer NIght's Dream" (although he was not one of my favorites he was perfect in this). Dean Stockwell "The Secret Garden". I know there are more, but now it's your turn. ;) It doesn't have to be their first film.
Hard to believe an actor that was one of Hollywoods top box office draws and nominated for Oscars in the 40s, 50s and 80s died broke! ~Mickey Rooney
Mickey Rooney sings about the woes of being married many times
It's time to watch captain courageous again. Really fun and the last film of the 20th century to be filmed on really fishing schooners. Great sailing footage. Freddie Bartholomew, Spencer Tracy, Lionel Barrymore, Melvyn Douglas, Mickey Rooney (RIP) Bet its on Amazon Prime or Netflix free. Editorial Reviews The fishing schooner We're Here has just pulled up a different kind of fish: rich, 10-year-old Harvey Cheyne, who tumbled off the side of a sleek ocean liner. Harvey will have to wait months before the We're Here returns to harbor, months that will transform him from a spoiled whiner into an honorable young man - all because of the life lessons he learns from Manuel, the humble fisherman who befriends him. From Rudyard Kipling's classic, Captains Courageous thrills with its seagoing action, grand scale and all-star cast. But what gives it full-masted magnificence is the chemistry between Freddie Bartholomew (Harvey) and Spencer Tracy (Manuel). Tracy won his first Best Actor Academy Award?* for his to .. ...

Here is the best reason ever for denying Hanoi Jane a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A GUIDE TO THE GREATEST GENERATION on the HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME The following list of WWII veterans was compiled from Wikipedia and other internet sources: it should not be regarded as 100% complete, and is subject to revision. This guide lists the street addresses of more than 180 stars for 158 American, 4 British, and 3 Canadian veterans. The Walk is sponsored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and adds a few more names every year. Established in the late 1950s, the Walk has 5 categories worthy of a star: motion pictures, radio, television, recording, and live performance. Gene Autry got all 5 of them, Tony Martin got 4, and the late Mickey Rooney, a member of the Hollywood American Legion Post, got 3 stars. Another 11 vets got double stars. As of the end of April 2014, there are 18 honorees still living, denoted with an asterisk - * - by their name. Vine St. North from Sunset Blvd. – East side 1500 ...

“Making Your Mark for Future Generations “ Isaiah 60:1, KJV Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. While watching TCM –(Turner Classic Movies) over this past weekend, I watched several movies with Mickey Rooney staring in them, and I heard this in my spirit. (“What are you leaving this world for future generations?) Read Matthew 5:13-16, KJV 13 You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house.16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Dear Lord, help my life to make a difference in this world!!!

Horror star Bela Legosi was burried in his Dracula suit & cape. On the TV series Superman, George Reeves was to come crashing through a door as Superman, he did this with nothing on but his Superman cape, they had to cut the shot out of the program.

Our final star for today was one that managed to survive into the 2000s before passing away on April 6th: the amazingly talented Mickey Rooney and his two directorial efforts My True Story (1951) and The Private Lives of Adam and Eve (1960). What hasn't been said about Rooney: he was one talented actor that managed to rake up more than 300 films and was one of the last surviving stars of the silent film era, having one of the longest careers in the medium’s history. But buried underneath this legend's achievements were two films he directed, all of which have been completely forgotten over the years of cinema history. Rooney's first shot at directing that he didn't star in was a film entitled My True Story, which tells about a female jewel thief (Helen Walker) and how she tries to get a secret oil ingredient for some purpose that isn't well explained in the film. For a miniscule-budgeted film, Rooney was able to make something out of it, but critics didn't like it and audiences couldn't figure out what ...

This is oh so right. Mickey Rooney had been saying that for a great many years.
It was William Holden's birthday last week. Watching the big finish of John Milius' Flight Of The Intruder, recently, made me think of the 1954 Korean war film, The Bridges at Toko-Ri. William Holden's other "Bridge" movie. Based on the James A, Michener novel, it stars Holden, Grace Kelly, Fredric March, Charles McGraw, Earl Holliman, and Mickey Rooney (great as a Mutt & Jeff pair of helicopter rescue pilots). Holden plays Harry Brubaker, a slightly embittered navy pilot stationed on March's aircraft carrier, who just wants to get through the war and get back to his law practice and beautiful wife and the two daughters he was taken from by being called to duty as a reservist. He just has to fly one major (likely suicidal) mission to take down some strategically vital bridges behind enemy lines. I just picked up a copy of the DVD on Amazon for $5 bucks, and that was a steal. I rewatched it today after not seeing it for many years, and it still holds up very well. I was surprised to read comments online th ...

Beth & I are observing the holidays in our own way, by playing our original game, "Celebrity Death Swap," over dinner. It goes like this: You pick a public figure who died far too young and, to rectify the loss of that person, swap him or her for a comparable person who burned out young and hung around unproductively too long. It began when I suggested swapping George Gershwin for Irving Berlin. Since then, our list has ballooned: Carole Lombard for Lana Turner, John Garfield for James Cagney,Selena for Jennifer Lopez, Tupac Shakur for Will Smith, John Kennedy Toole for JD Salinger, Heath Ledger for Owen Wilson -- and a few tough ones; Buddy Holly for Willie Nelson right after "Red Headed Stranger," James Dean for Marlon Brando after "The Godfather," Sam Cooke for Ray Charles after "Modern Sounds in Country & Western Music." A few are stumping us: Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber, Gary Busey, Mickey Rooney (lived/living too long), Philip Seymour Hoffman, Peter Sellers, River Phoenix, James Gandolfini, Basquia ...

ONE OF MY FAVORITE POEMS AS I THINK OF THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO HAVE GONE HOME AHEAD OF ME ON THIS EASTER SUNDAY: RIP MICKEY ROONEY AND FRANK DUNN AND OTHERS... No Man Is An Island No man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less. As well as if a promontory were. As well as if a manor of thy friend's Or of thine own were: Any man's death diminishes me, Because I am involved in mankind, And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

My recipe for a perfect Easter: start off with a sunny day (temperature still on the cool side for me but getting there), 90 minutes of Stooges shorts on TV (with the classic Hold That Lion, featuring Moe, Shemp, Larry and a cameo with Curly); a brisk walk with the neighbours' pooch Schatzi; a light lunch; an afternoon drive with Elaine, in search of birds of prey (hawks); possibly a Chai latte; preliminary research on my Shemp book; preparing a Chicken dinner for Elaine (veggie for me); watching the 1935 Midsummer Night's Dream featuring James Cagney, *** Powell, the incomparable Mickey Rooney as Puck and a host of other Hollywood notables of the day and topping the night off with Game of Thrones, with the suitable servings of rum.
