Actor Mickey Rooney may have only stood at 5 feet and 2 inches, but he was a giant as a talent and stood far above the rest.

Not only could Rooney act, he could play any musical instrument as well. He was fabulous in the “Andy Hardy movies, playing alongside Judy Garland. Those two powerhouses rocked. The role as mischievous Puck inA Midsummer Night’s Dreamwas absolutely made for a teenage Rooney. He was adorable.

But of course there was “National Velvet,” and the list goes on. There will always be something to remind of us Rooney. His legacy is his many movies, spanning over the decades.
