Midweek Madness offers a rough salute to Mickey Rooney

The death of Mickey Rooney has your Midweek Madness provider feeling nostalgic -- and grateful that the late star left behind a fine enough overall body of work to make up for his hideous impersonation of a Japanese character in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (talk about mad).

One of my favorite Mickey moments is "Treat Me Rough" from the 1943 film musical "Girl Crazy." (That's June Allyson, making her film debut, at the start of the number.) I think this is just the thing for a little midweek diversion, don't you?
