Remembering a Star

Gentle Friends you may have heard that on Sunday we lost another Star from the Golden age of film, Mickey Rooney. He was not your typical leading man, being of small stature.... but he was a giant talent and brought some really wonderful parts to life on the silver screen.

1920-2014
______________

With his gal pal Judy Garland they made some of the most memorable films of the 1930's.....
