And also immortalized by Ray Davies and the Kinks in the song “Celluloid Heroes”:
If you covered him with garbage
George Sanders would still have style
And if you stamped on Mickey Rooney
He would still turn round and smile
But please don’t tread on dearest Marilyn
Cause she’s not very tough
She should have been made of iron or steel
But she was only made of flesh and blood
My dad’s got a barn. My mom can make the costumes. Let’s put on a play!
Garland/Rooney. Name any of their teen movies. Hardy.
Love that song.
A few years ago his son was mistreating him and trying to get his money. I wonder how that worked out.
RIP Mickey, hope you meet up with your friend, Judy.
