Mickey Rooney had been a huge child star! Unfortunately, many producers and the public in general continued to think of him that was as he grew older. He actually played the part of a teenager in this series while in real-life he was in his mid-thirties! Seventeen years later, Mickey was considered for the role of "Archie Bunker" on the series, "All in the Family" but didn't get it. Some entertainment insiders felt that the 51-year-old icon was still seen by many as "Andy Hardy", his best known role as a child!
