Remembering Mickey Rooney

Dean Martin & Mickey Rooney

Being diminutive in stature was no impediment to reaching great heights of stardom in the Tinseltown of the 1930s, as proven in the early years of that decade by the popularity and talent of the recently-departed Shirley Temple…and by Mickey Rooney, who rose to the top of Hollywood’s box office heap in the late ‘30s and early ‘40s, and who left us this past Sunday at the age of 93.

With his gift for musical comedy, it should come as no surprise that Mickey appeared several times as a guest on The Dean Martin Show, including a cameo entrance from Dean’s closet on the April 8, 1971 episode, as depicted in the accompanying still.

R.I.P. Joe Yule, Jr. (his real name) a.k.a. Andy Hardy (his most famous movie character) a.k.a. Mickey Rooney.
