I just got done watching this film and i love Mickey Rooney in this one. He plays a rather grown up and mature character, which is wonderful to see. He is so handsome in this film. Mickey's acting was tremendous. He's totally amazing.;) i love the whole film. This movie is well worth seeing if you are a Rooney fan such as myself. I also like Ann Blythe in this film. She was good as Mickey's girlfriend. She looks like the type of girl Mickey would have fell for in real life. Tall and very pretty.;) I do not see why MGM could not have given Mickey better parts. His talent has not boundaries. I think the talent of the MGM script writers were where the boundaries lye. Anyhow, this is good one.
