Private Screenings: Mickey Rooney (1997)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another excellent interview for this now long running series hosted by Robert Osborne with special guest Mickey Rooney. It's rather hard to believe but if you visit IMDb's entry on Rooney you'll see that he has appeared in over three-hundred acting jobs and in 1940 and 1941 was voted the most popular actor working and that means he was even more popular than other MGM legends like Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy. In this interview Rooney is extremely animated and full of energy as he tells one great story after another. We get to hear stories about Ava Gardner, Jean Harlow, Tracy, Lionel Barrymore and many other legends who Rooney worked with over the years. We get some talk about Elizabeth Taylor and NATIONAL VELVET. We also get to see him do an impersonation of Barrymore, which was fun to see. There's some discussion about his early, silent work as Mickey McGuire and how he finally got his break. If you're a fan of Rooney then you'll certainly enjoy this. If you're a fan of cinema this is a real treat because of all the people Rooney can say he worked with.
