On Apr. 13, TCM is giving Mr. Rooney a tribute to honor his memory and to honor his contribution to movies.

The tribute starts with the film "Broadway to Hollywood," which that airs at 5 a.m. CST. In total TCM will be airing 13 movies, other movies that will be airing that day are, "Boys Town," "Babes In Hollywood," "National Velvet," "A Family Affair," "The Devil Is A Sissy," "Midsummer Night's Dream," and several others.

He worked with many talented actors of his time like Spencer Tracy, Judy Garland, Lionel Barrymore, Dick Powell, James Cagney, Freddie Bartholomew, Elizabeth Taylor, and the list goes on. He did have a pretty splendid career, and was given the chance to work with great talent.

So this Sunday TCM is taking the whole day to honor the memory of Rooney. For those who love his movies or who have never gotten the chance to watch very many, take some time to watch them. See why many called him one of the greatest performers of his time!
