Anika's second party attempt seems to have gone much better than her first. Thank you to my sister, Erika (the aesthetician), for coming to give the girls facials. My mom had ice cream sundaes and candy displays for the girls. i took the twins to see 'Night at the Museum' (some Robin Williams parts were creepily depressing - and Mickey Rooney's in it again), which was decent, but not as good as the urges and I don't like unnecessary disgustingness in kid's movies, so that grated on me. It's a wait to rent it kind of movie. You can't top General Custer, people! Anyway, stole pictures off my mom's phone and found some from my brother and sister's visit, too. :)

Mickey At War The Bridges At Toko-Ri (1954) The Bridges at Toko-Ri is a film from 1954 that was directed by Mark Robson and was based on the novel by James Michener about a U.S. Navy pilot assigned to bomb a group of heavily defended bridges during the Korean War. The story was made into a motion picture by Paramount Pictures. The Bridges at Toko-Ri closely follows the novel, emphasizing the lives of the pilots and crew in the context of a war that seems remote to all except those who fight in it. The film stars William Holden, Grace Kelly, Fredric March, Mickey Rooney, and Robert Strauss, and it also contains early film roles by Dennis Weaver and Earl Holliman. Michener based his novel on actual missions flown against the railroad bridges at Majon-ni and Samdong-ni, North Korea, during the winter of 1951–52, when he was a news correspondent aboard the aircraft carriers USS Essex and USS Oriskany. Onscreen credits include the following written acknowledgment: "We proudly present this motion picture a ...

What are the 3 careers I'd like to have? 6. Who are the two people that have stuck by me through thick and thin since 2009 or before? 7. What is my ethnicity? 8. What 4 countries do I want to move to? 9. What kind of movies do I love and what kind do I hate? 10. Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Mickey Rooney or Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt?

Boy's Town This was a classic film of 1938 that starred Spencer Tracy as Father Flanagan and Mickey Rooney as juvenile delinquent Whitey Marsh . The film was based on Father Edward J. Flanagan's work with a group of underprivileged and delinquent boys in a home that he founded in Nebraska. Nick Clooney wrote in his book, "The Movies That Changed Us: Reflections on the Screen" (2002) that "In February 1939, when he accepted his Oscar for the role, Spencer Tracy responded graciously by spending all of his acceptance speech talking about Father Flanagan. "If you have seen him through me, then I thank you." An overzealous MGM publicity representative announced that Tracy was donating his Oscar to Flanagan without confirming it with Tracy. Tracy's response was: "I earned the...thing. I want it." The Academy hastily struck another inscription, Tracy kept his statuette, and Boys Town got one, too. It read: "To Father Flanagan, whose great humanity, kindly simplicity, and inspiring courage were strong enough to s ...

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1935) is a truly unique Hollywood collaboration between theatre impresario Max Reinhardt and film director William Dieterle. Its casting is a real mixed bag (band singer *** Powell as Lysander, child star Mickey Rooney as Puck, Billy Barty as Mustard Seed) and the acting is way too theatrically over-emphatic. But the movie impresses in two regards. One is the way it deploys choreography, singing, Felix Mendelssonhn’s incidental music for the play (adapted by Erich Wolfgang Korngold) and state of the art special effects (supervised by Byron Haskin) to create a truly magical Forest of Arden inhabited by fairies, sprites, trolls and other fanciful figures. (Did Ridley Scott perhaps screen this before making Legend?) The other is the inspired casting of several the top comic character actors of the period--Frank McHugh, Hugh Herbert and Joe E. Brown--as the rude mechanicals who put on the play, Pyramus and Thisbe. And saving the best for last, James Cagney plays Bottom, t ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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! God rest your soul, James Darcy, may the road rise up to meet you, may the sun shine warm upon your face, may the wind blow warm upon ...
