Turner Classic Movies to Air Mickey Rooney Movies for His Death

By Jaycee De Guzman | 4 years ago

It is going to be 24 hours of marathon of Mickey Rooney movies for Turner Classic Movies as they pay tribute to the passing of the actor.

This could be one of the best ways for the classic TV channel to honor the many of Rooney in the business. He passed away last April 6 at the age of 93. He has served the show business industry for almost all his life.

He was a well-known child actor during the 1930s up to the 1940s. He has not stopped entertaining the public when he grew up, too. He continued it until the last years.

The Marathon and the Mickey Rooney Movies Included

Turner Classic Movies has made sure that they will be including the best of the best from Mickey Rooney. They have not announced yet whether they will show unique movies during that 24 hours, but one thing is for sure: his growth as an actor will be much more appreciated with this effort.

They will air the movies beginning on Sunday, April 13. The first movie will kick off at 6 AM. The “Broadway to Hollywood” will mark the beginning of the marathon. There were no timeslots given yet, but they will also put in ‘A Family Affair’, ‘You’re Only Young Once’, ‘Babes on Broadway’, and so on.

Twenty four hours is not enough to cover all the productions that he has done, but Turner Classic Movies will surely do anything to air the best.

Turbulent Personal Life for the Old Star

There were also several personal and business issues that had struck the career of Mickey Rooney. There are so many ups and downs during his life. This could be the reason why he had gone so well in his craft. He was considered as an easy pick whenever talent in acting is concerned.

The Los Angeles County confirmed his death in his place in the area. He died of old age. He was lucky because health has not taken so many tolls in him despite his great career.

Turner Classic Movies is right to honor the man this way. A lot of the youngsters today have not seen him during his ultimate prime. This will definitely be a huge chance for them to know him, probably for the last time. Were you touched by his movies? If yes, then, this could be it. Finding copies for his films will be a little harder, right?
