At the age of 93 Mickey Rooney has died. Married eight times and made
hundreds of films from his early years onwards.
National Velvet has always been one of my favourite films in which he starred with a young Elizabeth Taylor.

    Yes, that film Boys town has still got one of most tear jerking scenes in film history. Where the boys are running across a railway track and Pee wee gets knocked down. Mickey Rooney picks him up and walks away with tears steaming down his face. A wonderful film worth watching again and again.
