RIP Mickey Rooney

RIP Mickey Rooney. Mickey passed away yesterday at age of 93. I adored watching his films in my childhood, he will surely be missed by me.

Mickey Rooney goes off the diving board, as Marjorie Gestring gives him a push, during Judy Garland's birthday party at Louis B. Mayer's Santa Monica beach home. Judy Garland, June Preisser, Jackie Cooper, and Virginia Weidler sit (L to R) behind them on the board. On the edge of the pool is Ann Rutherford. 


Same party, here we have Jackie Cooper and Mickey kissing the birthday girl Judy Garland. Judy turned 17 on this day, June 13, 1939.Ah the good old days!
