He was a legend and one of the last surviving Silent film actors. He was also the last surviving cast member of several films.

My favourite film with him would be It's A Mad, Mad World. A total classic.

The cause of death has yet to be released, though he was in ill health for several years.

R.I.P.

One of my favorite roles of Mickey's was as the trainer in Requiem For A Heavyweight (1962) with Anthony Quinn and Jackie Gleason.
