Legendary Hollywood star Mickey Rooney died of natural causes in his North Hollywood home on Sunday in the presence of his family at the age of 93. Working as a performer since he was a child, he was a superstar as a teenager for the films in which he played Andy Hardy, and he has had one of the longest careers of any actor, spanning 92 years actively making films in ten decades, from the 1920s to the 2010s. During his career he received multiple awards, including a Juvenile Academy Award, an Honorary Academy Award, two Golden Globes and an Emmy Award. By 1965 alone, Rooney’s 200 films had earned more than $3bn (£1.8bn).
As the story goes, when he was 14 months old, unknown to everyone, Mickey Rooney crawled onstage wearing overalls and a little harmonica around his neck. He sneezed and his father, Joe Sr., grabbed him up, introducing him to the audience as Sonny Yule. He felt the spotlight on him and has described it as his mother’s womb. From that moment on, the stage was his home. “When I open a refrigerator door and the light goes on, I want to perform,” he said in one of his often-told jokes. He was six when he secured his first movie role.

Over 40 Images From ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun’– Starring Thandie Newton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anika Noni Rose & John Boyega
Soda Pictures has unveiled this hefty collection of images from ’Half of A Yellow Sun,’ the feature adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s acclaimed novel of the same name. Additionally, while the film is set to arrive on April 11th in the UK and April 25th in Nigeria, Monterey Media send word that the film will hit US cinemas on May 16th. For me, ’Half of A Yellow Sun’ is one the most compelling novels of the last decade (her latest novel ‘Americanah’ is fantastic too!). The Orange Prize-winning story follows the intertwining lives of several characters before and during the Nigerian-Biafran War of 1967-1970. The story is told through three different points of view: Ugwu, a thirteen-year-old boy from a small village who becomes a houseboy for a university professor full of revolutionary zeal; Olanna, the warm, progressive and beautiful daughter of well-to-do city-dwellers; and Richard, a white ex-patriot originally from England, who falls in love with Olanna’s twin sister.
Thandie Newton takes on the role of Olanna, with Anika Noni Rose as her sister Kainene. Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the role of revolutionary professor Odenigbo, with John Boyega as his houseboy Ugwu. Joseph Mawle plays the English writer Richard. ’Half of A Yellow Sun’ is directed and adapted for the big-screen by theatre director, playwright and novelist Biyi Bandele.
