The Slow Passing Of An Era

April 7, 2014



This morning we awoke to the passing of another Hollywood Icon. This one got me, I instantly started crying. Those Saturday afternoon showings of the Andy Hardy movies, his many appearances in other movies and the time my Dad took me to see the musical variety show “Sugar Babies” at Fair Park. Along with Mr. Rooney was the multi-talented Ann Miller. What a joy it was for the history of entertainment lover in me to see these two together.

So many of our entertainment icons are slowly slipping away and it saddens me. They truly broke the molds long ago. There will never be another like him and I mourn the passing of him and this era.

RIP Mr. Rooneymickey

    I loved Mickey Rooney and all his movies. He was so talented and could do it all! He sang, danced and acted! Very few could do all that, not even today. I hope he will rest in peace along with all the other talent of his generation that is in heaven.

    Truly unique in so many ways. He grew up with people like Jackie Cooper and Liz Taylor. This is truly the end of an era. [Did you know Mickey served in the US Army during WWII?]
