After Nine Decades in Entertainment, Mickey Rooney dies at 93
Actor Mickey Rooney, 93, died at his home in North Hollywood after more than nine decades of being on stage. Rooney was a Hollywood legend in the box office between the 1930s to early 1940s. Best known for his "vexing but wholesome Andy Hardy" and Judy Garland's "musical comrade in arms," Rooney also had later roles over 70 years later in "Night at the Museum" and "The Muppets." He was shooting the movie "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" with Margaret O'Brien at the time of his death. Rooney received two Oscars for film achievements, was nominated four times for Academy Awards over a four-decade span and he won an Emmy for his TV movie "Bill."
