MUSICALS, include humor, music, dancing and a story.
One of the reasons I love musicals, is the use of beautiful background scenery. Dancers seem to perform as if there is a live audience watching.
This is my version of DANCING WITH THE STARS.

Happy Birthday Mickey Rooney (1920 - present)
The super talented actor/dancer/comedian and all around entertainer turns 90 today. Mickey who recently starred with Ben Stiller in A Night at the Museum is one of my favorite actors. He could do anything: sing, dance, do comedy or drama. A very talented man. And I didn't realize he was married 8 times. But he has been with his current wife, Jan since 1978. My favorite Rooney films are The Andy Hardy films, It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World; Girl Crazy, Babes On Broadway, National Velvet, and Boys Town. He was at his musical best when paired with Judy Garland for all those "let's put on a show" type musicals of the early 40's.
