Aide to Japanese General
Did You Know?
A close friend of Mickey Rooney, Tong was Rooney's co-star on the TV series Mickey
(1964) at the time of his death. A heavy gambler, and deeply in debt because of it, Tong had no way of repaying his debts once "Mickey" was canceled midway through the 1964-1965 TV season, and committed suicide by drug overdose rather than face the consequences.
