TCM remembers Mickey Rooney with 24-hour film marathon

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will remember Mickey Rooney this Sunday, April 13, with a 24-hour marathon of his classic films beginning at 6am ET. Rooney passed away April 6 at the age of 93.

According to TCM, the memorial tribute to Mickey Rooney will include some of his most iconic performances, including Boys Town (1938) and its sequel Men of Boys Town (1941); the first two films in the Andy Hardy series, A Family Affair (1937) and You’re Only Young Once (1938); Babes on Broadway (1941), one of Rooney’s many pairings with Judy Garland; Captains Courageous (1937); and National Velvet (1944), among other titles.

“Mickey Rooney was easily one of the most talented people in American show business,” said TCM host Robert Osborne in a release. “Actor, singer, dancer, musician – he did it all. And what’s truly remarkable is that he did it so well for so long. Mickey was also a great friend to the TCM community. In addition to enjoying his great performances in countless Hollywood classics, we’ve had the chance to get to know Mickey through his interviews on TCM and his appearances at the TCM Classic Film Festival and the TCM Classic Cruise. He was a priceless talent, and we will all miss him deeply.”
