Biography

With parents who were actors, it comes as no surprise that the young Joe Yule Jr. made his debut on the stage at the age of only 15 months. He became part of the family act. He became well known for a series of some 50 silent comedies between 1927 and 1933 in which he played Mickey McGuire, a comic-strip character. In 1934 he was signed to MGM. At Mrs. Lawlor\'s School for Professional Children he first met Judy Garland , whom he would play against in several movies in the future, including some of the 15 \"Andy Hardy\" films. He gave a memorable performance as Puck in A Midsummer Night\'s Dream (1935). With movies like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1939) and National Velvet (1944) he reached the peak of his career during WWII. He was drafted during the war, and when he returned to Hollywood his fame and box-office draw had significantly decreased. Just like other child stars, he found it difficult to get a break as an adult actor. After Summer Holiday (1948) his career went downhill and the 1950s for him became a string of not-so-successful movies. He got his own TV show, \"The Mickey Rooney Show\" (1954) and toured nightclubs and theatres again in the 1960s. In 1983, following 60 years as an actor, he received the \"Lifetime Achievement\" Oscar.\"
