Mickey Rooney has died at the age of 93. 

While I've never been a huge fan of his by any means -- always found him too over the top, and don't get me started on his relationship with Ava Gardner -- his death marks an end of an era in cinema history. 

It was always a treat to see him in the audience at the Oscars, though I wish they had given him a better seat, not so far in the back. Dude was short and old! 

From what interviews have shown, I believe that he genuinely regretted taking Ava Gardner for granted (shamelessly and repeatedly cheating on her, etc.) 

They remained friendly throughout her life. 

Strangely, these photos beside one another make me sad.
