“The Mickster,” Mickey Rooney has passed at age 93. Gosh, he was born in Brooklyn and made the vaudeville stage as a teeny tiny baby at 17 months. The 1937 hit, The Family Affair, shot the actor skyward with the character Andy Hardy. Over several years, he cranked out 20 of those films between 1939 and 1941. He didn’t grow an inch, but his stardom exploded.

In Boys Town with Spencer Tracy, he showed his dramatic acting ability.

He burst into life when paired with actress Judy Garland in musicals. Yes, Micky was a song and dance man after all.

It is worth mentioning that he holds another record of sort, that is having married 8 different celebrity wives. If you want to make news, get a divorce. If you want to be reborn, get married.

In recent years, he became a victim of senior abuse by his step son. The court directed that he move in with his son, Mark Rooney who is a musician, and his wife Charlene, an artist.

The wives of Mickey Rooney reads a little like Henry the VIII, except they kept their heads and the money.
