Decorate your dartboard with this Mickey Rooney A Yank at Eaton ad

August 1, 2013

That Mickey Rooney was for a time the biggest star in Hollywood remains one of the great unfathomable mysteries of the 20th century American experience. No offense to the former “number one…star…in the world,” but was this ad really intended to get movie-goers in seats to watch A Yank at Eton, Rooney’s insufferable answer to A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court? Or was it supposed to rile you up into hurling filth and rotten vegetables at Rooney’s smug, impish face?

In a choice between this and Wake Island, here’s hoping more went to see the Days of Our Lives disembodied voice.
