Mickey Rooney RIP

the-year-without-santa-claus-mickey-rooney

The last great movie star has galloped off to his cosmic goal, the spritely, pugnacious actor never getting the thespic kudos he deserved in later years, despite special Oscar awards and nominations. Even when he was doing cameos in films he claims to not remember doing, like Otto Preminger’s SKIDOO (1968), he fully commits to the scene and character, as his memorable turn proves. He got huzzahs in his last years by surviving and outliving his peers, his imp fighting grin the secret to his success…I hope him and Judy are putting on the best show ever tonite…
