   Many tributes and on-air memorials are pouring in remembering the fine work of Mickey Rooney. His long career involved motion pictures, television, radio, and the live stage. Last night, getTV shared a movie retrospective, teleplaying some of his nice performances in All Ashore, Drive a Crooked Road, and Requiem for a Heavyweight.

   On Sunday, Turner Classic Movies will spotlight Rooney for a solid 24-hours with a dozen or so of his movies, mostly from Hollywood’s Golden Age. TCM frequently provides these wonderful cinematic honors; most recently, featuring Shirley Temple, Joan Fontaine, and Peter O’Toole. The really good news is TCM has a vast library of the actor’s films.

   I’ll offer my contribution this Saturday at 3p (PST) on my Forgotten Hollywood Radio Program on the Financial News and Talk Network. It’s a show I aired about a year ago that focused on the tunes made famous by Rooney, and in some instances, with his constant on-screen companion, Judy Garland. Click on the link below to listen (if you are outside the broadcast area):

   The life and times of Mickey Rooney will be well-remembered.
