Mickey McGuire movies (1927-34)
Moviegoers were first introduced to Rooney at the precocious age of seven, when he kicked off a dizzying run of shorts playing a scrappy kid named Mickey McGuire. Little did they know at the time just how long that relationship would last. The McGuire two-reelers proved to be such catnip for audiences that Rooney would be given a contract by Louis B. Mayer at MGM.
