Mickey Rooney, the child actor who became the world's top box-office star, has died aged 93, US police say.
Born in Brooklyn, he began his career aged 18 months in his parents' vaudeville act, Yule and Carter, and never really retired.
By 1965, Mickey Rooney's 200 films had earned more than $3bn (£1.8bn) around the world.
Sir Laurence Olivier once referred to him as the greatest film actor America ever produced.
