Happy Birthday Mickey Rooney!

Today, Hollywood Legend Mickey Rooney celebrates his 90th birthday! Did you know that in 1939 both he and Deanna were awarded a special "Juvenile Oscar" for their significant contribution in bringing to the screen "the spirit and personification of youth, and as juvenile players setting a high standard of ability and achievement". Here is a link to a picture of Mickey and Deanna from Deanna Durbin Devotees.

A movie starring Deanna and Mickey would have been fun! The closest they came to appearing the same film was in a cartoon short where they were both caricatured: "Malibu Beach Party" (1940). I wrote a post about it a few months ago.
