4.0 out of 5 stars "I never grew up.", Nov. 5 2008

This review is from: Life is too Short (Hardcover)
Mickey Rooney's 1993 autobiography is equally divided between his show biz memories and tales of his romantic exploits. He love of performing began when he first performed in vaudeville at the age of two. On to Hollywood, where he found steady work in silent pictures and became a box-office hit with the Andy Hardy movies and his musicals with Judy Garland. In the fifties, his star dimmed, but he has kept working and says he'll never retire.

Rooney writes with surprisingly little hubris and is honest about his addictions - drugs, gambling, and women. He married eight times but also romanced just about every beautiful woman he met. The book is chatty and energetic and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. There are many movie and personal photos. Fans of Mickey and those interested in the golden age of Hollywood will enjoy this upbeat memoir.
