I am a big Mickey Rooney fan as well. I was 15 when I went to see Mickey and Ann Miller in Sugar Babies, they were so entertaining!

 

I do not know if you live or will be in the New York area, but Mickey and his wife will be putting on review "Let's Put On A Show" at the Irish Repertory Theater on 22 street for 5 weeks. I already bought my ticket for the first week.

By all means the versatile Mickey Rooney is A-number-one in my book. Entertaining sice he was a wee kid he has done it all in all aspects of show business winning many awards for his efforts. It is just amazing that little Mr. Dynamite is still at it into his 80's.

We love ya Mickey!

I saw Rooney & Miller in SUGAR BABIES as well and they were both just GREAT!!!

 

A couple of pros who knew they were there for us and that we were there for them!

 

The only performance of The Mick's I don't like is in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S - but there you are!

 

He is still tops in my book, and I am so glad he is still around!

I was first introduced to Mickey Rooney when he was in BILL with Dennis Quaid. It was such a beautiful show a masterpiece it was sponsered by General Electric I believe. We saw it on PBS I was between 10 and 15 years old then. He can do it all and it's nice that the Academy Awards has given him an honorary Oscar while he is still alive. His accepting of it is on my tape of Oscar Moments from 1970-1990. He was very gracious.

GWTW - I sgree - seeing Mickey Rooney get his Oscar was a great moment. It is always interesting to see someone with real talent and history in movies standing up in front of the "one picture wonders" and showing them how it should be done.

 

I love those "Great Moments" tapes - especially to see the "big" stars that have disappeared after only a few years....
