From Los Angeles, we learn about the death of 93 year old Mickey Rooney. The child actor enjoyed an extremely long career.

He was one of MGM’s biggest stars in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The show biz legend is best known for playing the boy-next-door, Andy Hardy, teaming up with Judy Garland for musicals, and starring in “National Velvet” with Elizabeth Taylor.

Rooney was married eight times, first to actress Ava Gardner. A few years ago, Rooney alleged elder abuse by his step-kids and testified at a Senate committee.
