Mickey Rooney

Biography

Date of Birth 23 September 1920, Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA Birth Name Ninian Joseph Yule Jr. Nickname The Mick The Mickster Height 5' 2" (1.57 m) Mini Biography With parents who were actors, it comes as no surprise that the young Joe Yule Jr. made his debut on the stage at the age of only 15 months. He became part of the family act. He became well known for a series of some 50 silent comedies between 1927 and 1933 in which he played Mickey McGuire, a comic-strip character. In 1933, prior to being signed by MGM, he had an uncredited but key role an in Warner Bros' "The Life Of Jimmy Dolan"(1933) and played a Circus Boy in the cult action serial "Clyde Beatty And The Lost Jungle"(1934). Once at MGM, in 1934, at Mrs. Lawlor's School for Professional Children, he first met Judy Garland, with whom he would co star in many of his 15 "Andy Hardy" films as well as many memorable musicals such as "Strike Up The Band"(1940)' and ""Girl Crazy"(1943). Giving rise to the famous quote, "Lets put on a show in the barn". He gave a memorable performance as "Puck" on loan in Warner Brothers' prestigious flop A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935). With movies like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1939) and National Velvet (1944), he reached the peak of his career during WWII. He was drafted during the war and, when he returned to Hollywood, his fame and box-office draw had significantly decreased. Just like other child stars, he found it difficult to get a break as an adult actor. After Summer Holiday (1948), his career went downhill and the 1950s and 1960s for him became a string of not-so-successful movies with the exception of several notable performances including supporting roles in (The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954), "Breakfast At Tiffany's"(1961), the Rod Serling-scripted drama Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) and the frenetic It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963)). The downward spiral of his career coincides with the decline of his former studio, MGM, which was near-mortally wounded by the Supreme Court's 1948 anti-trust decision concerning theater ownership leading to the ultimate collapse of the studio star system, which Rooney was a part of. Out of his long MGM contract by 1949, he turned increasingly to the one-eyed monster for employment. He got his own short-lived TV show, "The Mickey Rooney Show" (1954) and toured nightclubs and theaters again in the 1960s. Rooney experienced a career renaissance of sorts in 1979 on with The Black Stallion (1979) (again in a supporting role) and on stage, with the dropped pants burlesque hit "Sugar Babies" which ran for 1208 performances on Broadway. He took the play on the road for 3 years afterward where he packed houses across the U.S. (Joey Bishop and Eddie Bracken filled him for him during his 3 contractual vacations). In 1983, following 60 years as an actor, he received the "Lifetime Achievement" Oscar". Rooney, now well into his 80's, has been surprisingly active and has found himself far more in demand that he was 30 years ago, recently seen to good advantage in the hit Night at the Museum (2006).

Baker (30 September 1944 - 3 June 1949) (divorced) 2 children Ava Gardner (10 January 1942 - 21 May 1943) (divorced) Trade Mark Best known in his youth for playing Andy Hardy with Judy Garland as the female lead in cheerfully naive musicals that usually ended with the characters putting on an impromptu musical show. In his senior years, he often played an cheerful old mentor with a youthful spirit. Short stature Raspy voice Trivia Mickey's son Teddy Rooney appeared with him in Andy Hardy Comes Home (1958), portraying - who else? - Andy Hardy Jr. Son of Scottish-born vaudevillian/actor Joe Yule and Nell Carter.

Liza Minnelli wanted Rooney to do the eulogy at the funeral for her mother, Judy Garland in June of 1969, but decided against it because she felt that Rooney might not be able to get through it, given his and Garland's long and close friendship. Was co-owner for many years of the Mickey Rooney Tabas Hotel in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. In his autobiography, he made a passing reference to a brothel called "The T&M Studio," where the ladies were look-alikes for Hollywood starlets. There were rumors of such a brothel, but before Rooney's book no one would ever admit to ever having been there, or even verify its existence. He wrote that Groucho Marx had taken him there (only once), and Groucho appeared to be on a first-name basis with many of the ladies. Originally came to Hollywood to audition for "Our Gang" (aka "The Little Rascals" (1955)), but didn't get in. Stepfather of Christopher Aber and Mark Rooney. According to one story, Mickey Mouse was named for Rooney. Walt Disney saw a young Rooney while he was working on the first drawings of what was to become Mickey Mouse. He asked the child actor what he thought of the drawings and also asked what his name was. This later proved to be false. Was nominated for Broadway's 1980 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for "Sugar Babies." His third child, Teddy Rooney, was born weighing 7 lb. 3 oz. on April 13, 1950, to Martha Vickers. With movie appearances stretching from 1926 to 2013, totaling 86 years, his is the second longest career in cinema history, surpassing Lillian Gish, whose career spanned the years from 1912 to 1987, or 75 years, but one year less than Carla Laemmle, whose career began in 1925, and has credited roles for 2011 and 2012 at age 103. He has appeared in films in ten consecutive decades: 1920s-2010s. Underwent double heart bypass surgery in 2000. Was number 7 on the World Poker Tour Invitational even though he had never played Texas Hold 'Em poker before.

He was a close friend of the Reverend Jerry Falwell. In 1938, he was severely reprimanded by MGM studio head Louis B. Mayer for having a torrid affair with Norma Shearer. The affair was causing quite a commotion on the set of her film Marie Antoinette (1938), where the two would hole up in her trailer. Mickey was 18 at the time. Shearer was 38 and her husband, MGM studio exec Irving Thalberg, had recently died. Mayer managed to keep the story from going public and it was not revealed until many years later, when Rooney gave the explicit details in his autobiography. Has four (4) Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame including a star for Motion Pictures at 1718 Vine Street, a star for Television at 6541 Hollywood Boulevard, a star for Radio at 6372 Hollywood Boulevard, and shared with wife Jan Rooney a star for Live Theater at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard.

Personal Quotes [at 58 years old] I'm in pretty good shape for the shape I'm in. [asked if he would marry all of his eight wives again] Absolutely. I loved every one of them. My partners weren't what we call in horse racing parlance "routers". They were sprinters; they went out of the gate, but then they stopped. They couldn't go the distance. People say, "How can you be married eight times?" But I played the hand dealt me the way I was supposed to. I was friendly with most of my ex-wives. My God, there's a Mickey Rooney's Former Wives Marching Band! [on his marriages] When I say "I do", the Justice of the Peace replies, "I know, I know". I'm the only man in the world whose marriage license reads, "To Whom it May Concern". But to have been married eight times is not normal. That's only halfway intelligent. You've got to recognize, there will never be another you. It has nothing to do with ego; it happens to be the truth. There will never be another person the same. There'll never be another you. There'll never be another me . . . And there'll never be another show like this! The audience and I are friends. They allowed me to grow up with them. I've let them down several times. They've let me down several times. But we're all family. Had I been brighter, the ladies been gentler, the Scotch weaker, the gods kinder, the dice hotter - it might have all ended up in a one-sentence story. Love wears off too quickly. I don't regret anything I've ever done. I only wish I could have done more. I was a 14-year-old boy for 30 years. [upon winning his lifetime achievement Oscar, 1983] Tonight, I could even kiss Louis B. Mayer!. [on his lifelong friend and frequent co-star, Judy Garland] Judy turned to drugs because she was in pain and because drugs made her feel good. As one of the MGM kids, she'd been treated for most of her life to magical, instant, solutions to everything . . . She could never accept herself so she was always on the run. I didn't ask to be short. I didn't want to be short. I've tried to pretend that being a short guy didn't matter. The guys with the power in Hollywood today, the guys with their names above the title, are thieves. They don't make movies, they make deals. Their major function is to cut themselves in for ten per cent of the gross - off the top, of course - which is why they make movies that cost fifty million dollars. [Bill Clinton] was a Rhodes Scholar. Do you know who the scholars were? Marxists! I just want to be a professional. I couldn't live without acting. There may be a little snow on the mountain, but there's a lot of fire in the furnace. All the muddy waters of my life cleared up when I gave myself to Christ. I've been through four publics. I've been coming back like a rubber ball for years. [on his feud with Ernest Borgnine] All the Oscars in the world can't buy him dignity, class and talent. I don't know why he is famous and why he is a star. Talk about a lucky jerk. If it's immorally wrong, it's not normal. Jesus Christ said, "The effeminate are an abomination to me". Are you aware of that? I don't watch the [Ellen DeGeneres] show. I wish her all kinds of luck. Except that I'm not a fan. But there are a lot of people who aren't fans of Mickey Rooney and you can't please everyone. [in 2007] I think the family pictures are what people really want to see - and musicals, of course. I don't get caught between lesbians and gays. If you can't say something nice about someone, just shut your mouth. I never knew anything about anyone being gay in Hollywood when I was working in the studios. Did you know that? They weren't in closets, they were in safes. I lost $2 at Santa Anita and I've spent $3 million trying to get it back. Sure, I love the chicks. I love 'em all. But when you're nuts about too many, how can a guy settle down to one? Hollywood has unfortunately become a memory. It's nothing but a sign on the side of a hill. When I was nineteen years old I was the number-one star for two years. When I was forty, nobody wanted me. I couldn't get a job. There was, in fact, a standard studio recipe. Take one young actress, pluck her eyebrows, cap her teeth, shape her hairline, pad as required and throw her into the ring with Andy Hardy. Then wait and see. If the public responded, the starlet became a star.
