12 year old Mickey Rooney shines
4 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hello Mickey Rooney fans! If you love Mickey Rooney and have not seen this film, I highly recommend it. Mickey Rooney was only 12 years old in the movie and given second billing. Mickey Rooney is King Charles and his pal is Tom Mix (The cowboy star) Mickey has a big role in this film and is so adorable. Anyone could tell the Mickey Rooney was destined for stardom. Not only just for stardom but to be the BIGGEST star of the world for 3 years in a row. In my opinion Mickey Rooney perhaps is the most talented star of Hollywood's Golden Years and he's still working! GO MICKEY! If you love westerns and Mickey Rooney please buy this film. You can find it on ebay quite a bit! Get a copy, you will love little Mickey!
