He had 20 pictures to his credit, before the stock market crash of 1929.
He was a Hollywood veteran, when Norma Jean Mortenson (1926-1962) - later to become the great Marilyn Monroe, was a young girl watching her favorite stars at the movie theater. Dreaming of stardom for herself one day.

All the celluloid that Mickey's image has graced, could stretch to the moon and back - most likely.
It would require exactly 280 Mickey Rooneys standing on each other's bald heads, to surpass the tip of the Empire State Building.
