Another Hollywood legend has passed away…
Mickey Rooney, whose roller-coaster, nine-decade career in show business included vaudeville, silent films, movies, television and Broadway, died Sunday. He was 93.
Rooney's career spanned almost the entire history of motion pictures. He made his first film, the silent "Not to Be Trusted," in 1926 and followed it up with several shorts based on the "Mickey McGuire" comic strip. He was still making movies nine decades later, including "Night at the Museum" (2006) and "The Muppets" (2011).
Rooney had just completed his last movie role in the next installment of "Night at the Museum" with Ben Stiller.
He lived an amazing life and had a very long career that he loved. You can't ask for more than that in life.
He will be missed.
